How to Change Text Color in Html

In HTML, we can change the color of any text using the following different ways:

  1. Using HTML tag
  2. Using an Inline style attribute
  3. Using internal CSS

1. Using HTML tag

Note: HTML 5 does not support the color attribute of font, so we have to use the inline style attribute and internal CSS options for changing the color of a text.

If we want to change the color of a text using Html tag which is to be displayed on a web page, we have to follow the steps which are given below. Using these steps, we can easily change the color of any text:

Step 1: Firstly, we have to type the Html code in any text editor or open the existing Html file in the text editor in which we want to use the Html tag.

Step 2: Now, move the cursor at the starting of that text whose color we want to change. And then, type the empty Html <font> tag at that position.

Step 3: Then, we have to close the font tag at the end of the text whose color we want to change.

Step 4: Now, we have to add the attribute of the font tag whose name is "color". So, type the color attribute within the starting <font> tag. And, then we have to give the color which we want to use on the text. So, type the name of color in the color attribute as described in the following block.
