don't forget the 3 of your readers who are color blind. 

The rest is a CSS question IMHO

Yes, but a little effort will produce very good results?
CSS is great for instant reward.
I use the O'Reilly CSS The definitive guide.
Again and again and again. 

p.emphasis {
font-weight: bold;
color: yellow;
As each property is added, finish it with the semi-colon.
Get the colors from http://html-color-codes.info/#HTML_Color_Picker
or google CSS color chart

I generally find a book easier than the rec, they are
written for implementers, not users.
