HTML - dynamic HTML formatting using CONCAT and <font color>

Situation: I have a collection that has two columns: a question and an answer field.

 

Desire: To generate an HTML PowerApp insert that grabs the questions and answers into a table. I've been able to do that successfully, but I want to add some conditional formatting. For example, if my answer is "1," I want the text to be red, if the answer is 2, I want the text to be green.

 

See below for my start: The issue with my coding below is that it's a table - so I don't know if I need to use First...or ThisItem...any help would be much appreciated!

 

"<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<Table width='100%' border='1' cellpadding='5' style='border:0px solid black; border-collapse:collapse'>" &
     "<tr style='background-color:#efefef'>
 <td align='left'><b>Question</b></td>
  <td align='left'><b>Answer<b></td>
  </tr>"
  & Concat(colanswers, "<tr><td>" & Question & "</td><td><font color="""&If(colanswers.Answer="1","Blue","Red")&""">" & Answers & "</font></td></tr>")

&
"
</table>"&"
</body>
</HTML>
"

The column name should be supplied without ThisItem or colAnswers in front of it.  There is no need to disambiguate since CONCAT knows the datasource from the 1st argument.
