I'd like to replace the word "Failed" in <TD>Failed</TD> with <TD><p style="background-color:red;">Failed</p></TD>

I used sed -e 's/Failed/<p style="background-color:red;">Failed<\/p>/
but it was errored out.
Please help.  Thanks.

Besides, can "sed" ignore the case?

Thanks. This works.  
But how do I ignore case (-i) in this sed?  The word could be "Failed", "failed", or "FAILED".
