Hi (again):
I am trying to set the value place in the field defined below]
to yellow. Would this be the correct syntax? ( I am concerned
that a literal would be put in the field.)

I'm not a swing expert (yet), but I do believe that that would put the String literal "font color=yellow" inside your JTextField and it would be black still. Maybe try the method Wageout.setForeground (Color.yellow);
I forgot what your textfield is called exactly, but you see what I mean. That should? set the text color. If I'm wrong, please someone correct me.
