In delphi 6,

I am trying to create an edit control that allows a user to type in and as they are typing I would like certain keywords (that I will define) to be turned bold or red.  Im assuming I can you the RichEdit control for this but I would like an example.  

The best way to describe what I am looking for, if you have ever use the SQL Query Analyszer and typed in a SQL statement, notice how the keywords change color.  That is what I want.
