An easier way is to type what you want, then highlight it and click in the [color] box and click the color you want.

Sounds like you clicked on the link icon instead of the color drop-down list.
Up above the link icon is a white box that says [Color]. The downward pointing arrow at the end of the [Color] box is what you want to click on. Lots of choices there.

Each time I try to type with a "color" a small box requires that I enter the text to be formated.

Okay, I highlighted and presto, I got dark orange.

Thank-You !!! ;)

It worked the first time, but it had some words in front of it???

That shows that you have an "open" tag for the font, but no "close tag" [/font] so that's why that text shows.

For everything you do to text there needs to be an "open tag" - like " without the spaces, and a "close tag" -
