ASP GridView Color Only Date In Table Cell Text?

I have a GridView with cells containing both Text and Date.
I would like to color only the Date as blue.
Can this be done?
I'm open to JQuery solution too.

How does your GV markup look like?
You can use Template field and use a Label to display the Date. Set the color for the label accordingly.

It's a dynamically created Gridview. I'll get some code posted.

Is the date always in it's own column?

I got to work this way since its dynamically rendered. Would be nice to replace the 'For' iteration with a 'Foreach' if possible. It will fail if the columns count changes.

Note: the html color tag is in the database table and could not render properly unless the Gridview uses the HtmlDecode per/row. This is problem when AutoGenerateColumns="true"

 protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
 {
     if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
     {
         for (int i = 7; i < 22; i++)
         {
             e.Row.Cells[i].Text = Server.HtmlDecode(e.Row.Cells[i].Text);
         }
      }
 }
