A simple question of color

Ive turned to the experts that may be able to help in this small dilemma
I have a Wordpress blog and I cannot, for some reason, see red
<font color="Red"><h1>NEWSFLASH</h1></font>
If I add this to my usual html editor it works fine
But in Wordpress it stays black no matter what variations I try.
Can anyone make a suggestion here?

    Instead of
    color="Red"

    try
    style="color: red;"
    or
    style="color: #FF0000;" (or "#800000" for a darker red)

    The inline style will override any style sheet color definitions.

      PS: Just realised the H1 tag. Put the style in the H1 tag:-

      <h1 style="color: red;">NEWSFLASH</h1>

      You can delete the FONT tag

    Yes, do it as a style and not a font tag. The font tag is old code.

    Keeping yourself updated with the latest developments in the field of html could be challenging. Specially when it changes so fast.

    Thank you all, It is now "red". I'm not quite sure what happened there, or the why with "font" included it didn't work- oh well! Thanks again for your help.
    I've bookmarkd that CSS Guide also. Should prove handy.
