It is in the BODY tag that you can set the background and colors for the entire page.
|ALINK = color||Activated link|
|VLINK = color||Visited links|
|LINK= color||Plain, unvisited links|
|TEXT=color||All ordinary text|
|The 16 standard color names are: aqua, gray, navy, silver, black, green, olive, teal, blue, lime, purple, white, fuchsia, maroon, red and yellow (there are 256 standard extended color names.)|
You can add spot color to text with the font tag. You can set colors with color names or hexadecimal settings. Note that the font tag stays on until it is turned off, but does not effect links.
This line is the default text color for the page but this word is <font color=red> RED </font> and these words are <font color=#00FF00> ALL IN GREEN </font>
This is the OLD way of doing colors, the correct and current way is to use a style sheet instead!
