I have a JTextArea that is logging user supplied messages. When I display the message, I'm doing something like this:

m_myTextArea.append("Bob says: " + msg);
m_myTextArea.append("Sally says: " + msg);
m_myTextArea.append("Server says: " + msg);

Is there a way I can make "username says: " green for example, then the rest of the message red?
