How can I change the color of the dot part (in this case, the dot is the triangle) on "i" letter with Illustrator? I have done the Create Outlines but I can only change the I color as a whole. I'm still noob in Illustrator so I need your help to enlighten me. Thanks

Sounds like it's a Compound Path. With the outlined 'i' selected, use Object → Compound Path → Release (or just right click on it and select Release Compound Path). The shapes will then be separated and you can change the colors independently.
