Hi Aldo

Try this - it works for me!

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx,color}  %graphicx package with color

\begin{document}

\textcolor{blue}{Blue Colored Text}

\color{red}
Or you can use the declaration\\
To make everything RED\\

\color{black}
Until you want to go back to black

\end{document}

I am not an expert, but this works for me. I guess I should post this reply in the list, but I am having email issues today! Anyway I thought it might help you...
