Type (<)font color=________ (>) before the text you want to be colored, then (<)/font(>) after the text to be colored. Fill in the blank with one of the words in color below. Subtract the parentheses--I had to use them so the coding would show.
You can also use the color white. This comes through as a space on your page, and can be used for indentation, a mid-line space, etc. Between the coding "bookends," the text can be anything (all x's, for example), just pay attention to the number of spaces you want, or pre-count them, and type that many characters.
