in the <style> tag, look for the # sign that comes before a name and then a {. Look for the one that holds properties for the text. add the following code, and change the color to fit your needs.

color:red;

ex.

#hey {
color:red;
}

The only bit I could find was this bit of the code
#domticker2 a{
text-decoration: none;

}

did what you said but to no avail??

Try to add highlighted instead:


#domticker{
width: 500px;
height: 25px;
border: 0px dashed black;
padding: 1px;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
color:#f00;
}


Feel free to change the color values to fill your heart's desire.

Hope that helps.
