$str = "red white green";
$arr = explode(' ', $str);
//now the array is like this:
//array([0] => "red", [1]=>=>"white", [2]=>"green")

$result = <li style="color:' . $arr[0] . '"></li><li style="color:' . $arr[1] . '"></li><li style="color:' . $arr[2] . '"></li>';

echo $result;

Cheers

"red white green"; is example, it may be less or more than 3 value

Here it is with foreach:

<?php 
$str = "red white green";
$arr = explode(' ', $str);

foreach ($arr as $color) {
	printf('<li style="color:%s"></li>',$color);
}
?>

You dont need a foreach, an implode will do here:

$str = "red white green";
$arr = explode(' ', $str);

$output = '<li style="color:' . implode('"></li><li style="color:', $arr) . '"></li>';

echo $output;

Post your code!

FWIW - I prefer the foreach(). I think it's cleaner than the implode (plus it's easier to read and debug). You certainly won't get the output that you say you're getting. Give it a try and see how you get on.

If you want to add it to a string, just concantenate your variable, but if you want to output it, why bother - just output it line by line. Building a variable seems an unnecessary step, but here you go anyway.

$output = '';
foreach ($arr as $color) {
      $output .= sprintf('<li style="color:%s"></li>',$color);
}
echo $output;
