Well, you need to add a var, so at the top where all of the vars already there, you need to add this:

var font_color = "#C100C1"; //You can change this to any hex code you want, or rgb. Doesn't matter.

Then change this line of code:

output += "<font style='font-size: "+ q +"pt'>" +tekst[s].substring(w,w+1)+ "</font>";

To this:

output += "<font style='font-size: "+ q +"pt;color: "+font_color+"'>" +tekst[s].substring(w,w+1)+ "</font>";

What this is doing is adding the color thing to your style with the var font_color, then you need to cahnge this line[a few lines under the previous]:

output += "<font style='font-size: " + size + "pt'>" +tekst[s].substring(k,k+1)+ "</font>";

To this:

output += "<font style='font-size: " + size + "pt';color: "+font_color+"'>" +tekst[s].substring(k,k+1)+ "</font>";

Dude, I really appreciate the help. I had some success with your suggestions, I made the code changes you posted above, I was able to change the lead text color. But I still can't change the main text color. Now here I would like to say, I KNOW its me that is doing something wrong. I am even pretty sure that you explained in detail how to change the color in your post above, but me in my ignorance am just not getting it. So I hope you don't mind if I trouble you some more. Here is the link to the site I put the code on.


You can see where the text effect is. I was able to change the text color to red on the lead. What I can't seem to figure out is how to change the black text to a different color. Thanks in advance!:)

Hmm, I don't know how to fix this.

But try changing this line:

idee.innerHTML = output;


idee.style.color = font_color;
idee.innerHTML = output;
