			<p>Adium provides indication of when your user name (and some other text you possibly specified - see below) has been mentioned in a <a href="Messaging-GroupChat.html">group chat</a>. Primarily it does so by displaying a grey line in the scrollbar (not customizable) but Adium also provides a way for message styles to apply custom styling to messages that contain a mention.</p>

			<p>Adium provides indication when a new message has been received in a <a href="Messaging-GroupChat.html">group chat</a> after your tab/window lost focus. Primarily it does so by displaying a red line in the scrollbar (not customizable) but Adium also provides a way for message styles to apply custom styling to messages that were received while focus was lost.</p>
