Screen Shots?

I've noticed in some of the How-To's on freebsddiary.com they have some nice screen shots of the terminal. I'd like to use the same type of screen shots. Do I need to install Gnome or KDE to do that?

That depends. If you are talking about the black boxes for example on this article, they aren't screen shots but html markup.

Code:
Kinda like this

This can be verified by that you can select the text, which isn't possible in a image file ;)

% vidcontrol -p > outfile
kinda does, but it's just the text.

Besides grabbing a screenshot of a virtual machine in X, I'm at a loss.

I found a way to display the screen (with black background), on Dan's website freebsddiary.org using the pre class="screen".

Just remember that you need the accompanying css definitions which you can find in the stylesheet, as class="screen" is css markup and not html markup
