Use a richedit on the win32 tab.

Look in the online help how to set the font color and style, use the SelAttributes  property.

This is taken from the online help:

This example requires a TRichEdit and two TButtons. Leave the default text, usually "RichEdit1", in the lines property. The DefAttributes will apply to this text.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with RichEdit1.SelAttributes do
  begin
    Color := clRed;
    Height := Height + 5;
  end;
  RichEdit1.Lines.Add('This line of text will be red.');
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  RichEdit1.DefAttributes.Color := clBlue;
  RichEdit1.DefAttributes.Style := [fsBold, fsItalic];
end;

If you are using D4 or less then this is the code using a TRichedit component as suggested earlier:

    RichEditMemo.Selstart := Length(RichEditMemo.Text);
    RichEditMemo.SelAttributes.Color := clBlue;
    RichEditMemo.SelText := 'This is the first line in blue'+#10;
    RichEditMemo.Selstart := Length(RichEditMemo.Text);
    RichEditMemo.SelAttributes.Color := clBlack;
    RichEditMemo.SelText := 'This is the second line in black'+#10;
