Changing color in java/jsp

Hi Experts,

I am wondering if there is a way to change color of the output of part of my string. for example I have this:

 <option style="font-size: 36px;"
                                  ; value="<%=applicationName + "," + createdDate%>">
                                 out.print(applicationName + "    Created: "                                                            + createdDate.substring(0, 10)
                                                            + "   Last Updated: "
                                                            + lastUpdated.substring(0, 10));
                  </option>can I have the the color of "created" to be different than the rest?

try this.
out.print(applicationName + "    <font color='red'>Created:</font> "                                                            + createdDate.substring(0, 10)
                                                            + "   Last Updated: "
                                                            + lastUpdated.substring(0, 10));

Poor suggestion
Font is a deprecated tag and it does not work inside an option

No you cannot change the colour or the font of a word in a normal dropdown.
You will need to use a styled dropdown instead
