Demo of colours

Click on the Wikitext button in the edit view to see the syntax:

  • This is green
  • This is red


and now trying to change colour again *Hopefully this sentence will be green - why oh why is it so technically difficult to change font colour?

Well that works, can I make something blue? Will this be blue?
