Default Need help changing color on text, please

I am using the following to let my users know that the page is loading and they should wait for everything to load before going on.

<BODY bgcolor="#ffffff" onload="document.form1.text1.value='Loading complete, begin testing now... ';">
<center>


<center><form name="form1">
<input type="text" name="text1" size="32" value=" Data Loading, Please Wait . . ."/>
</form></center>

I would like to change the color of just the text 'Loading complete, begin testing now...' and 'Data Loading, Please Wait. . .'
How do I change it to red?

Thanks in advance for your help!
Larry

If you're looking to change the color of the text in a text box...

Code:
document.getElementById("the_text_box").style.color="#ff0000";
Unless there's other text in the text box you don't want to change?

You will have to clarify for me, unless this helps you.;)
