Can you e-mail me a screenshot after you typed:
#include "colors.inc"
And one after you saved and reopen the file in POV-Ray?
And please send me the scene file also.

POV-Ray unofficial uses the standard text input, I really have no idea
right now what is going on.
When I select US keyboard on my Mac Pro I have to press shift and a key
near the return key to type a "-character. Totally different key
compared to my Belgian keyboard but it works like expected.
