    use the span tag where ever you want to put the red * like

    < span style="color: red" > * < /span >

    this is another way to implement,

    place Requirefield validator control next to the each Textbox which are all mantatory,

    set following property in Requirefield validator control, thru property window(F4)

    errormessage = "*"
    controltovalidate = textboxname

    when you submit the value, if the value is missed in the text box, then it will display "*" in red color, as you expects.

    Hope it Helps!

    Note: Plz rate this answer, if it helped you!!
