How to create a multicolored href tag

I used the following to create 4-color menu item on a PHP page on website Panachallenge.com.

What is an elegant way to reduce this code to one href instead of four and still retain separate color control for each word? Also the words should appear with no spaces between them, like this HelpKeepUsOnline. On the site there are spaces.

echo "&nbsp; &#183; &nbsp;\n" . "<a href='/paypal/donate.php' class='menu'  style='color: #00FF33'>Help</a>\n" .  "<a href='/paypal/donate.php' class='menu'  style='color: #33CC00'>Keep</a>\n" . "<a href='/paypal/donate.php' class='menu'  style='color: #00FF33'>Us</a>\n" . "<a href='/paypal/donate.php' class='menu'  style='color: #33CC00'>Online</a>\n";

The above is the corrected code. There were three missing single quotes in the code posted by COBOLdinosaur.

COBOLdinosaur - please edit your solution to include the missing three apostrophes so I can give you the full 400 points. Thanks so much for your quick response!

A comment can't be edited after another comment is posted, so I'll just re-post with the single quotes.

<a href='/paypal/donate.php' class='menu'><span style='color: #00ff33'>Help</span><span style='color: #33cc00'>Keep</span><span style='color: #00ff33'>Us</span><span style='color: #33cc00'>Online</span></a>


BTW, points as a motivator is overrated.  Experts who have been here a long time quit worrying about them after hitting about 100,000 and finding out you can't buy beer with them. ;^)
