Trying to figure out how to make some text a different color?  Can I override broadcastSubtitleFormat.color = 0xffffff; by setting <font color='#FFBE3C'> in broadcastSubtitle_txt.htmlText  for one word?  Any other suggestions are appreciated.  TIA.

if (_global.broadcastSubtitle_array[titleNo] != undefined) {
            createTextField("broadcastSubtitle_txt", 790, 15, 180, 175, 60);
            broadcastSubtitle_txt.multiline = true;
            broadcastSubtitle_txt.wordWrap = true;
            broadcastSubtitle_txt.border = false;
            broadcastSubtitle_txt.selectable = false;
            broadcastSubtitle_txt.html = true;
            //broadcastSubtitle_txt.embedFonts = true;
            broadcastSubtitle_txt.htmlText = _global.broadcastSubtitle_array[titleNo]+" <font color='#FFBE3C'><a href = 'http://www.yahoo.com'>More</a></font>";
            broadcastSubtitleFormat = new TextFormat();
            broadcastSubtitleFormat.font = "Arial";
            //broadcastSubtitleFormat.bold = true;
            broadcastSubtitleFormat.color = 0xffffff;
            broadcastSubtitleFormat.size = 10;
            broadcastSubtitle_txt.setTextFormat(broadcastSubtitleFormat);
      }

Actually I would do it in two ways (of choice):

1.

createTextField("broadcastSubtitle_txt", 790, 15, 180, 175, 60);
broadcastSubtitle_txt.multiline = true;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.wordWrap = true;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.border = false;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.selectable = false;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.html = true;
//broadcastSubtitle_txt.embedFonts = true;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.htmlText = "<font face='Arial' size='10' color='#FFFFFF'>" + _global.broadcastSubtitle_array[titleNo] + " <font color='#FFBE3C'><a href = 'http://www.yahoo.com'>More</a></font></font>";


2.

createTextField("broadcastSubtitle_txt", 790, 15, 180, 175, 60);
broadcastSubtitle_txt.multiline = true;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.wordWrap = true;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.border = false;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.selectable = false;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.html = true;
//broadcastSubtitle_txt.embedFonts = true;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.text = _global.broadcastSubtitle_array[titleNo] + " More";
broadcastSubtitleFormat = new TextFormat();
broadcastSubtitleFormat.font = "Arial";
//broadcastSubtitleFormat.bold = true;
broadcastSubtitleFormat.color = 0xffffff;
broadcastSubtitleFormat.size = 10;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.setTextFormat(broadcastSubtitleFormat);
overrided = new TextFormat();
overrided.color = 0xfFFBE3C;
overrided.url = "http://www.yahoo.com/";
overrided.target = "_blank";
var ini = broadcastSubtitle_txt.text.indexOf("More");
var end = ini + "More".length;
broadcastSubtitle_txt.setTextFormat(ini, end, overrided)
