simply because there is no attribute textcolor in HTML or CSS. the attribute is called color. seeing there's background-color and border-color, I understand that it's confusing. I always wondered why there's no font-color. maybe it's because of simplicity.

Because the language was made in the USA. Color is American English for Colour in plain English.
