Hi Experts

I want to colour the background of a text string if it meets a condition, my existing code is like this;

<td nowrap colspan="2<font color="#FF0000"><b>Supplier Invoice date:</b></font>

Please advise the syntax for colouring the background just of the phrase "Supplier Invoice date"

Thanks

Hi RangerLad,

<td nowrap colspan="2" style="color:#FF0000;font-weight:bold;background-color:#00FFBB">Supplier Invoice date:</td>

For example, includes the font formatting you already have applied.
