I would hope you are using CSS, as this would make everything easy and modern. It can be done with HTML, but CSS is easier, better to manager and make everything look more like site of the 2000s, and less like a personal page from '96.

If you use CSS, and all say h1 are of a certain color then you could do
h1
{
color:#HexColorChoice;
}

unfortunately, only html, because sql server has not adapted to css yet.

<font color="green">Green</font>

you could place something like that before and after each text that you want to change the color of.

is that what you are trying to do? or something more dynamic?

Perhaps inline style?

<span style="color:green;background-color: purple;">Green</span>
or
<h1 style="color:green;">Green</h1>

for example

you have to scoot it over to the next <td> like what I have below

<H1>FuncCode Report</H1><table

border="1"><tr><th>Column1</th><th>Column2</th><th>Column3</th><th>Column

4</th><tr><td>1</td><td>text2</td><td>text3</td><td>text4</td></tr><tr><t

d>2</td><td>code2</td><td><font color="green" size="+2">code3</font></td><td>code4</td></tr></table>

Please see code below for three different examples of how to use inline styles, each row has a different example of were you could put them.


<H1>FuncCode Report</H1>

<table border="1">
  <tr style="color:green;background-color:purple;">
    <th>Column1</th>
    <th>Column2</th>
    <th>Column3</th>
    <th>Column4</th>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td style="color:white;background-color:black;">1</td>
    <td>text2</td>
    <td>text3</td>
    <td>text4</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>2</td>
    <td><span style="color:red;background-color:yellow;">code2</span></td>
    <td>code3</td>
    <td>code4</td>
  </tr>
</table>
