Thanks for trying out your exercise on my research server, and for the extra information about the CSS which is setting the color of the text.
The CSS that you quoted comes from Hot Potatoes. However, by itself it should not be enough to override the font/span tags that you insert into your Hot Potatoes exercises.
Therefore, it seems to me that something on your Moodle site is removing the font/span tags that you insert. Perhaps a Moodle filter?
What I would really like to do is come to your site and investigate myself. May I?
If not, please could you try the following:
- view the HotPot activity in your Moodle site and confirm that the question numbers are NOT displayed in the color that you expect, i.e. they are displayed in black
- view the source of the page in your browser
- Chrome: View -> Deveoper -> View source
- Firefox: Tools -> Web developer -> Page source
copy ALL the page sourceopen up your favorite txt editor (e.g. Mac: TextWrangler, Win: Wordpad)paste in the copied page sourcesave in a new text file: hotpot.txtsend me a private email and with the hotpot.txt file attached
- bateson dot gordon at kochi hyphen tech dot ac dot jp
You should be aware that the page source will reveal to me certain information about your site, such as the URL, the theme you use, and the attempt id of when you viewed the HotPot activity. If you do not wish me to know that information, or you are not allowed to share it with me, I understand. Perhaps you could have a word with your Moodle admin, and remove any information deemed "private".
The information I wish to gain from the hotpot.txt file, is exactly what HTML tags are there, and exactly what CSS is affecting those tags.
