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.

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