well what criteria are you using for deciding what color to use? Whatever it is, changing to font color is simple enough. You can change the font color of an html element by using the color style as part of the style html tag attribute. So for example, if I wanted to change the color of a p tag to yellow or something, I would write

<p style="color:yellow">some text blah blah</p>


I don't know how your html is set up, or what criteria the database information must meet to be a certain color, but the above may get you started. If you could post a few more details I can help further

while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC)) {
echo '<tr><td align="left">' . $row['id'] . '</td>
