When you retrieve it through PHP, you can do something like this when echoing it:
<?php echo ($mydata < 0) ? '<span style="color:red;">' . $mydata . '</span>' : $mydata; ?>

It isn't a mysql database that you are selecting from I can tell, but if you were the code below would be what it is.

This would set the bg color to red, but the same concept could be set for the font as well.

You will need to change the mysql syntax to the MSSQL or Access that you are using
$sql = "Select table1.ID, table1.Name, Sum(Case When table1.ID = table2.ID and  table2.score1 < 0 Then score1 Else 0 End)
From table1, table2";
$result = mysql_query($sql,$db);
if ($result && mysql_num_rows($result) > 0 )
{
	echo "<table cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>";
	for ($i=0;$i<mysql_num_rows($result);$i++)
	{
		$id = mysql_result($result,0,"ID")
		$name = mysql_result($result,0,"Name")
		$score = mysql_result($result,0,2);
		if ( $score < 0 )
		{
			echo "<tr style=\"background-color:red\">";
		}
		else { echo "<tr>"; }
 
		echo "<td>".$id."</td><td>".$name."</td><td>".$score."</td>";
		
		echo "</tr>";
	}
	echo "</table>";
}
