When using html and linking to a text file to be displayed, as below,
does anyone know how the type style, colors & size can be specified?

If it's a text file, served as text, I don't believe you can. If it's
an HTML file wrapped with <pre... </prethen of course you can
style it.

Whether it's a good idea to do that is another matter.

That link is 404, so I can't tell what you are really trying to do.

However, I know that HTML formatting for a non-HTML TXT file really does
not exist. The display will be formatted according to how the user has
configured his or her browser.
