How to change the background color of a span/div WITHOUT CSS [closed]

Tags: html,css

Problem :

I'm building an alert page. I'm trying to make the page work even if javascript and CSS is failing.

I would like to use maybe deprecate HTML codes to do this. I need the span that contains the alert message to have a red background.

Please advise.

Solution :

You can use the bgcolor attribute to set the background colour, but it's far better to use CSS to style a page as the bgcolor attribute only works on certain tags.

<table bgcolor="#FF0000"><tr><td> My alert contents </td></tr></table>

For example it won't work on <span>, <div> or <p> tags, but will work on <body> and <table> tags.
