How do I change the color of individual text?

I would like to be able to change the color of specific segments of text within the wiki document.

For example:

<span style="color:#0000FF">blue writing</span>

Is it possible to do so, and if so, what is the correct syntax?

Is this a good question?

I have found that colors can be changed within a table row using <<color="color">> but not inline with the main document.

Other wiki-type tools allow this. It's too bad this one doesnt

Hi Rob,

Thank you for your question! Right now, it is not possible to change the color of specific segments of text within a wiki. What you can do is change the color of text conditionally. For example, you can make it so every time you use the bold text, it can also be changed to a certain color. The CSS to accomplish this is:

strong {
    color: red;

This can be added in the Appearance section of your managment console. This would be a site-wide change. For more information on custom CSS, see our documentation here.
