    In some cases I've wished I could use some coloured text to emphasize certain phrases or paragraphs.  Even just red and blue HTML tags would be sufficient.  After all you can do that very thing just like I did here, why not in your hubs? 

    Please add this feature...I think it would add interest to the hubs, as long as we used it sensibly smile

    I agree I would also like to see a little more freedom in the text editor.

    To keep a professional look and quality to hubs, I would have to say no about it.

    We have the ability to enhance the words via a bold script. Adding more colors to the mixture would allow for childish behavior to ensue. Or at least the possibility of it. smile

    To paraphrase a favorite quote from my friend, stage magician Jeff McBride, "limitation forces creativity."

      Three simple words but so profound.

    Creativity is the key! I agree.

    If you wish to highlight a quote within you Hub, create a colorful powerpoint - all the colors are available to you - complete with the background color.  Save as a single slide as a jpg or every slide and simply bring into your hub under the photo capsule.

    It gives us a world of unlimited possibilities.

      Yes, I've considered that too.  I might just do that. Stay tuned...smile

      Thanks everyone.

    In the right hands it would be put to good use.

    But 90% of the time it's never in the right hands. Even something as simple as colors and fonts would give the untalented the power to make a hub look like a pool of dogs vomits.
