Is there a CELL Function that you can identify the color of a font with?
I would like part of a macro to make a decision based upon the color of the
font in a particular cell.

Use font colorindex in your code.

Sub test_for_color()
With ActiveCell.Font
If .ColorIndex = 3 Then
MsgBox "got it right"
Else
MsgBox "not right"
End If
End With
End Sub

You could set the code up with Select Case for varying colors.
