I have been unable to change the font color to white with css:
.Bfont22{
       font-size: 22px; font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
               font-weight: bold;
                     font-color: #FFFFFF;
                     text-align: center;
       }  
I have also tried:
 font-color: white;
I am trying to use it like this:
<span class="Bfont22"> RoofCalcWriter 10.8</span></font></td>
What is wrong ?

Thanks jocasio123, but it made no difference
.Bfont22{
       font-size: 22px; font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
               font-weight: bold;
                     color: #FFFFFF;
                     text-align: center;
       }

The class you're using on the span is wrong.  You have it as .Bfont18

Thanks I was styling the wrong line with a white background

<table class="NailTable">
<caption><span class="Bfont12">RoofCalcWriter 10.8</span></caption>
<tbody><tr>
       works on the blue background
      <th colspan="3"><span class="Bfont22">RoofCalcWriter 10.8</span></th>
It was working, but could not be seen white on white

Hmm. That's strange.  I changed the doc in firebug and got the white text.  Perhaps you should empty your cache to see if that works.

I'm not sure why this is being closed.  I've identified the fact that the wrong class was being used, and even tested it in firebug.  The class that was being used was <span class="Bfont18"> as I reviewed the file That was attached.  Now the span that he is showing is correct with the proper class.
