are you using a style sheet or want to do it inline?


Try this for your hr:

<hr color="#FF0000">

And what exactly do you want to color in the text box?  The text?  The backround??

ClassyLinks is right, although the coloring of the textbox will not work in Netscape. If I recall correctly, there is no way to modify the color of a textbox in Netscape.

To add to ClassyLinks HR code:
<HR NOSHADE COLOR="#FF0000" WIDTH="50%">

This will create a horizontal rule without shade (like a single straight line), color Red, and half of the abailable width.
Again, this is not intended as an answer, the credit should go to ClassyLinks, if ever....just a suggestion...

also, to trick the sorry browser...oops I mean Netscape 4.x into creating a colored phony <hr> create a dummy table and color it:

<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bgcolor="#0000FF">
<tr>
<td width="100%"><img src="spacer.gif" width="1" height="2"></td>
</tr>
</table>

This would create a 2 pixel high blue line that works even in NS4.x for an example see http://artifexbid.com (my day job) they have green "<hr>" tags all throughout the site that are cross browser (actually are tables).

Classylinks covered the <textarea> answer, no love for that in NS4.x
