I need to be able to change the color of part of the text in a specific row in a drop down box in HTML.

Take a look at the code sample below.
Obviously the font tag here has no effect.
I know how to change the color of a whole row, using css and <option class=red>, but how can I do this with part of the row?
Would also be useful if I could set the background for that portion of text.

<option>item2.1<font color=red>item2.2</font>item2.3</option>
