All the texts are in the same DIV.

1. You need to create a separated DIV for the "Password must be reset." and put a special class for it.
2. Add new CSS rule with the color you want inside the css file.

Example :
<div id="text-id" class="signtext" style="">
Sign in to XXX
<h1>
Change Password
</h1>
</div>
<br>
<br>
<div id="text-id" class="passwordtext" style="">
<h1>
Password must be reset.
</h1>
</div>

Hi,
the easiest would be to simply use a replace:
$(document).ready(function () {
    var oldContent = $("#text-id").html();
    $("#text-id").html(oldContent.replace("Password must be reset.","<span class='highlight'>Password must be reset.</span>"));
});

hi
you will not get this to be executed.
Reason:

$("h1").text() will give you complete string not separated by <br/> tag.

So the solution for this is:
Update your design/html code like:

<p id="CPWD">
Change Password</p>
<br>
<br>
<p id="RPWD">Password must be reset.</p>

and then write simple jQuery function:

alert($("#RPWD").text());

Hope this helps you.

Just use a SPAN tag - easy :)

//HTML
<div id="text-id">
   <h1>Change Password<br><br><span>Password must be reset.</span></h1>
</div>

//jQuery
$('#text-id h1 span').text('something new');
