Microsoft's Richtext control richtx32.ocx supports multicolor text.  Here is some sample code to change color and font of a portion of a richtext control.

txtControl.Text = txtControl.Text & vbCrLf & "Error Description Returned: " & strTemp
txtControl.SelStart = pos
txtControl.SelLength = Len(txtControl.Text) - pos
txtControl.SelBold = True
txtControl.SelColor = QBColor(12)
txtControl.SelLength = 0

All you have to do is set the selstart and sellength and change the color using selcolor.
