Changing font color in Approval email

I am building a flow  and the requester has asked to have one of the lines in the approval email be in bold red font. I can make the font bold using Markdown however I am struggling to make the font red. I have tried the following HTML: 

 

<p style="color:red"> The sentence.</p> -  double quotes

and

<p style='color:red'>This is a paragraph.</p> -  single quotes quotes

 

Can the font be changed? I have not found any articles on changing the font color.

Hi @M_Whitenight 

 

Flow approval emails formatting only supports the markdown language.

Thanks Reza for the response.. I had used the documentation you provided yesterday to make the lines bold but was hoping for a font color solution. I find where an idea was submitted and placed my vote. Maybe someday this will be available.

Someday 🙂

Maybe there is some technical reason for it, but I really don't understand why the developers decided that Approvals (and ONLY Approvals - other than a "Markdown" web part in SharePoint, I don't see this used anywhere else in M365) would use Markdown rather than the "industry standard" of HTML for formatting. Nearly all of the Approval flows I manage have reminders, and I try to include all of the information the approver needs to make their decision in the message itself. If Approvals used HTML, I could just have one Compose or variable for "message body" with all of the appropriate formatting and just drop that into the Approval Details or the body of the reminder email. Instead, I need to define the message content in two separate actions.
