Download and install the plugin using the Extension Manager.
This plugin requires gdlib support, see phpwithgd for help.
You can give colors to text by using the syntax:
<fc #FF0000>Red Colored Text</fc> or <fc #008000>Green Colored Text</fc>
This formatting behaves equal to other wiki syntax like italic and bold. You can only apply it to text, not to headers.
The (original) code is similar to the Plugin highlight The difference is only, that not the background-color but the font-color changes
