A Color that represents the foreground color of the control. The default is Empty.
Remarks

This property will render on browsers earlier than Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4 for all controls, except the Image, AdRotator, HyperLink and LinkButton.

NoteNote

On browsers earlier than Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4, this property is rendered as <font> tags.
