This is probably a very simple question but I have tried a few different ways today and the php keeps sending me error messages.

I want to change the colour of the staff number to red when displayed on the page, here is the bit of code I have to work with,

echo "Staff Number: ";
echo ($row['f_staff_id']) . " ";

Where do I put the <font color "red"> </font> tags in the second row?

Is it like this?

echo "<font color "red">($row['f_staff_id'])</font> . " ";

Can anyone sort me out with the correct way?

You should learn to use CSS to specify how the data is presented. In your case, do something like:
echo '<span style="color:red">' . $row['f_staff_id'] . '</span> '; ?>
