The font tag has been depricated a long time ago, and as such it's no longer recommended to use it. Instead, you should use CSS. You probably already have some CSS in your page that overrules the color set by the font tag. If that's the case you can't even use the font tag anymore. Try this:
Response.Write("<br /><span style="color: red;">*</span>.... rest of the code here")
Rather than applying a style to a span, you could also use a CSS class. Add the following to your CSS file:
Then modify your code as follows:
Response.Write("<br /><span class="Attention">*</span>.... rest of the code here")
With this code, you can now control the color of the attention text from a single location.
