Subject: [mg125629] Different Color in ToString

Does anyone know how to change the color of the font in a ToString command.

For example, in the following, the text should be blue, but the number 3 should be red.

n = 3;
Text[Style["There is "<> ToString[Style[n, Red]] <> " numbers here", Blue]]

Thank you

I would do as follows:

myNr[x_Numeric] := Text@Style[ToString[x], Red];
myText[x_String] := Text@Style[x, Blue];

n = 3;
Row[{myText["There is "], myNr[n], myText[" numbers here"]}]

Try it.

Have fun, Alexei
