HTML Text Color Code

You can use the following HTML code to specify color text within your HTML documents.
In HTML, color is applied using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). More specifically, to set the foreground color of an element, you use the color property. To set the background color, use the background-color property.

Text Color - Inline Styles

Using inline styles, your code is inserted within the HTML element that you want to apply color to. This is done by using the 'style' attribute along with the span tag.

This code results in:
Normal text color different text color normal text color different background color


Text Color - Embedded Styles:

Using embedded styles, the CSS code is inserted between the style tags within the head of the document.


This code results in:



Normal text color
different text color
normal text color

Text Color - External Style Sheet

If you have a multiple page website, you should consider placing your text color code into an external style sheet. This makes it much easier to maintain the styles across your whole website.
