Is there a way to add style to page content via API?



I'm trying to automatically update a page's content via the REST API but it seems I cannot send style along the HTML.  For example, It will accept this:


But not this:

<span style="color: red;">Something</span>

If I send the style information, I get:

{"statusCode":400,"data":{"authorized":false,"valid":true,"errors":[]},"message":"Error parsing xhtml"}

The only way I can send the content is raw, with no color. Is there a way to do this afterwards (using the API)? Or if there a way to allow the style to be sent to Confluence?

Hi! Thanks for the answer!

That seemed to be the problem. I had tried to escape the quote marks but It seems I skipped something and it keept failing.
