Changing the font of a CStatic is pretty easy ..

fontBox=new CFont;
fontBox->CreateFont(16,0,0,0,600,0,0,0,
      ANSI_CHARSET,OUT_DEFAULT_PRECIS,CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS,
      DEFAULT_QUALITY,DEFAULT_PITCH|FF_DONTCARE,"arial");
m_title.SetFont(fontBox);

But to change the color of the text it isn't so easy ...
I've been reading tons of help files and I couldn't find
anything useful. Any help is wellcome.

In the dialog override OnCtlColor (WM_CTLCOLOR), check for the id of your static control and set the color as you wish.

You can check the help for that message, it's pretty clear.

To add to my answer, here's some code:

HBRUSH CDRegimes::OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlColor)
{
if( nCtlColor == CTLCOLOR_STATIC ) {
  if( pWnd->m_hWnd == GetDlgItem(IDC_YOUR_STATIC) ) {
    pDC->SetTextColor(RGB(100,100,100));
  }
}

return CDialog::OnCtlColor(pDC, pWnd, nCtlColor);
}

It's something close to that.
