The obsolete HTMLFontElement.color property is a DOMString that reflects the color HTML attribute, containing either a named color or a color specified in the hexadecimal #RRGGBB format.

The format of the string must follow one of the following HTML microsyntaxes:

fontObj.color = colorString;

Examples

// Assumes there is <font id="f"> element in the HTML

var f = document.getElementById("f");
f.color = "green";
