As mentioned. Textarea controls (like any form input control) cannot have multiple font colors.

You could try using <div contenteditable> and using javascript to copy the innerHTML of this div to an input field before submitting, but this is somewhat tricky.

how to use the contenteditable in javascript function?
<form method="post" onsubmit="this.content.value=document.getElementById('contentdiv').innerHTML">
  <textarea style="display:none;" name="content" >content here</textarea>
  <div id="contentdiv" contenteditable>content here</div>
  <input type="submit" value="Save" />
