Changing Text Color:

Highlight the text you wish to format and use the main WYSIWYG Editor drop-down menus to the right of the "Styles" menu to alter the text color and / or the text background color (if desired)  

Note: altering the text background color can make readability for the end-user awkward and undesirable if not done properly.  It's best to use this feature to "highlight" a text area that you wish to stand out but there are usually better ways to achieve that same goal which look more professional (depending on the type of content and the audience)

The Webmaster chose the most frequently used colors (seen here in the color palette) but if there is another color you'd like to use, we may add it if there is enough of a demand.

It's easier to see what a color will look like by viewing it in text form so we've displayed each color below for your convenience.  We've displayed it in the same order as it appears in the color palette dropdown menu.  We used a bold font with the "Heading 3" size to stand out more for you to see what they will look like in a standard article with a white background.  A second listing of the text colors is displayed at the bottom of the page with a Black background as an example of what they could look like in contrast.

Standard colors are displayed with their corresponding name and other colors we selected are displayed with the text "UnnamedColor" followed by their corresponding color code.
