color and font style in a textbox

Is there any way to either change the color or font style(i.e. bold) of specific pieces of text in a textbox?  

I'd like to change certain words to appear as bold or in a different color.

Thanks.

If you use the standard text box, it is not possible.
You must use the rich text box control.

With RichTextBox1
    .SelStart = Starting position of the selection
    .SelLength = Length of the selection
    .SelFontSize = 15
    .SelBold = True
