Thanks Cat.. I think your right about the Style over riding my entries. I added the code you provided to my PHP Input and the color wasn't even recognized like the other code line. This is one of the main obstacles in Joomla and WordPress, the templates Rule and it's very difficult to make exceptions to their rules.
If I didn't enter this as you suggested, excuse my lack of coding experience. One of the main reason I and I think many others move towards WordPress type web software is because coding is not suppose to be required. While technically this is true, coding is necessary when Plugins are not available or if you want to customize features.
Thank you for the help.
