Default USB questions...

I have a wireless keyboard, and the eye for it has like a dark transparent cover. I thought it would be cool to add some LED's to it.

I need to know what voltage a USB line gives out, and which wires are hot. Does anyone have a diagram or a mod article about USB cables? I saw one somewhere, but can't remember where.

Thanks for any help.

Cool, thanks for the site.

Ok, and now since I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to electrical... the red (5v) would be positive, and the black (ground) would be negative, right?
