You can use HTML to add color to your posts. Whenever you need to <FONT COLOR="red">emphasize</FONT> a word, you can use a < FONT COLOR = "red" > with a < /FONT > after it. <FONT SIZE="1" COLOR="blue"> without the spaces, of course</FONT>

Here are a couple other colors:

<FONT COLOR="BLUE">Blue</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="GREEN">Green</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="YELLOW">Yellow</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="ORANGE">Orange</FONT>

Another thing you can do is work on the signature. It only uses vB code, so once you figure out HTML coding, you can see how the coding for my name was done here:

[COLOR=# 009700] A [/COLOR][COLOR=# 004A00] N [/COLOR][COLOR=# 00CE00] G [/COLOR][COLOR=# 005B00] L [/COLOR] I N _ F O O L

Hit the Quote mark to see how I did it and never mind the "size" ones, I was playing with it. The color code is in hexidecimal and you can get those numbers any number of ways.
