ksfok,

The background color can be changed with ...

document.getElemementById('theSpan').style.backgroundColor = 'red';

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Some different ways to change span color:
<html>

	<head>

		<title>Script Demo Gops&reg;</title>

		<style>

			body, input, div, a, span{font-family:verdana;font-size:11px;}

			span{cursor:hand;cursor:pointer;}

			#coCSS{background-color:#7CA6A6;}

		</style>

		<script language="javascript">

			function changeColor() {

				var o = document.getElementById('btnClick');

				o.style.backgroundColor='#9166E6';

			}

		</script>

	</head>

	<body>

		<span id="coCSS">I am a Span I am colored with CSS</span>

		<br><br><br>

		<span id="coClick" onclick="this.style.backgroundColor='#D5FF00'">I am a Span Click me to change color</span>

		<br><br><br>

		<span id="btnClick">I am a Span, change my color by clicking on [CHANGE COLOR] button</span>

		<input type="button" onclick="changeColor()" value="CHANGE COLOR">

	</body>

</html>
