Put a Gridview row in a specific color.

I'm using Visual Studio 2005, but programing in Visual Basic I want to know what code implement in RowDataBound Procedure to put an specific row in a different color when a cell in that row has an specific value.
Let say that my grid has the name of "GrdBrokers" and I want to put the entire row in red color when the cell # 5 has the value of "DELETED"

This doesn't have to be in the rowdatabound procedure, but in any case,

For each row as GridViewRow in GridView1.Rows
    If row.Cells(the cell number of that column).Text = "DELETED" Then
            row.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Red
    End If
Next

I already test this string and is strange for Font Bold works, but for Forecolor NOT
            If e.Row.Cells(7).Text = "DELETED" Then
                e.Row.Font.Bold = True
                e.Row.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Red
            End If

e.row.color doesn't exist as option, by other hand,  iboutchkine good point, no I don't have any CSS attached, but what I have is this which probably doesn't allow me to change the forecolor, bt I can't get rid of this:

      function hight_temp(vl,vlw){
      
              if(xState){               
          if( xState.parentElement.parentElement != vl) {    
 
          if (  vlw == 1 ){        
            fmr_cl = vl.style.backgroundColor    
            vl.style.backgroundColor='#639ABC';          
            vl.style.color='white';
           
           }
           else{          
                                 
            vl.style.backgroundColor= fmr_cl ;          
            vl.style.color='black';
           
             }          
           }
           
           }else{
           
           
          if (  vlw == 1 ){
         
            fmr_cl = vl.style.backgroundColor                          
            vl.style.backgroundColor='#639ABC';          
            vl.style.color='white';
           }
           else{                                  
            vl.style.backgroundColor= fmr_cl;          
            vl.style.color='black';
           }  
           
           
           
           
           }
           }
          // -->

As I told you iboutchkine is not a CSS is a java function which allow me to highlight each grid row when I point them, and I can not get rid of it, anyway you were the guy who was closer to the "solution" I will give the points.
