Highlight characters in a string

P: 1
First of all, I'm a rookie in Javascript :(
I'm trying to make an statement in jscript to color letters from a text, but it seems it's not so easy.
More precisely: It is necessary to color letters as follows: first letter red, the second one black, the third red so on.
I don't know hot to set the condition in order to do that.
I've tried with FOR and IF.

Thank you

first of all you need (I am assuming that you are working on a website) to wrap up each letter in an inline element (e.g. <span>) and then you can give each of those elements the desired colour via CSS.

on a more advanced stage you can wrap only each second letter to give it a different colour than the base text.
