HTML coding? ?

+5 votes
I was using coding to create a centered Bold Colored Title for memorials

before I used  - see first example Robert Royce:

<div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Bookman Old Style; font-size: 18pt; color:#0404B4"><u> '''Robert Royce of Connecticut'''</u> </span></div>

but I noticed the color disappeared

so recoded (I had to put the ''' outside the <span>) See second example at Robert Royce

<div style="text-align: center;">'''<span style="font-family: Bookman Old Style; font-size: 18pt; color:#0404B4"><u> Robert Royce of Connecticut</u> </span>'''</div>

I believe this happened when the pages changed style. Can it be fixed without my finding the places I used it and then changing them? Should I have been doing it the second way all along? Some of my HTML coding is by "feel"

Anne, I've run across color html issues in the past. But I just noticed that the profiles use XHTML 1.0 transitional, so I tried this and it worked:

<p style="color: red">hello</p>


<div style="color: red; font-size: 3em">hello</div>


As for applying bulk updates... I'd be surprised if we had that ability but if a tech would like to give us a tip, please do:D
