Subject: Arbitrary colouration of words/sentences etc. in HTML export?
Date: Tue, 21 Aug 2012 15:38:52 +0000
Message-ID: <44B0EAE8544C834188E8790873CDE1CC226BF8F8@ARCEXCHANGE.arc.local> (raw)


Is there any good quick and /simple/ way to drop an arbitrary colour on a sequence of characters that will show up in the exported HTML page?

I have introduced a colleague to org-mode for generating documentation, however they want to use multiple colours to highlight different terms. Adding a CSS style rule for *bold* is OK, but it would be nice to do other colours without rendering the other common styles (/i/, _underscore_, etc.) useless. Something like:

    #+HTML: <span class="greenish">
    #+HTML: </span>

or even this:

    @<span style="color: green"> Greenword @</span>

is far too clumsy. Especially since they're using it partly so they don't have to deal with HTML.

Any better way to do this?

Thanks very much!
