In SQL Server 2008, is there a way to apply different colored comments depending on what you start the comment with?

For example:

--DEBUG
or
/*DEBUG

can be red while any other comments are the default green.

Have a look at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms173754.aspx
Have not tried the distinctions you are looking for such that I can not say whether what you want can be achieved.

And from that link....
"The settings for text color and font type are global for all text element types, such as comments, strings, and so on."

So I'm not sure how you could have multi coloured comments
