I'm getting an error with a style I'm using:
td.right{background:silver;
font-family:Verdana,Arial;
font-color:'#336699
font-size:12}

and in the body:
<table>
<tr>
<td class="right"></td>

The problem is that the font color will not change; it defaults to black.

Any suggestions/Ideas?

'

(single quote) after colon.

Also, you need a semicolon after the #336699

And I think you should put spaces in your stylesheet where a human would expect to see them. This will make it easier to read and errors will be easier to spot.

When I find myself leaving out tabs and spaces in a stlyesheet I know it's time for a break.

Assigning a class means you only need to define the class and not the tag it is applied to.

td.right {
becomes
.right {

You can then apply the class="right" to any appropriate tag.

Hi Everyone;
thanks for your replies.
I figured out the problem:
to change the color of the font the code is:

{color}
not {font-color}
