I’m from the UK. Is it possible to have CSS accept the spelling ‘colour’ instead?

No, it would not accept colour. The syntax could not be changed if the spelling is different based on Geography. Welcome to the world of code.

Things to notice.

The code in the example above demonstrates how to use inline styling. The paragraph element has a style attribute within its opening tag. Next, the style attribute is set equal to color: red;, which will set the color of the paragraph text to read within the browser.

The last part of the sentence would be “…which will set the color of the paragraph text to red…”

It is currently set as “read”. I have submitted a bug report. Let us see if it is fixed.

Thanks for clarifying.
