Dude, the answer is still no. You can't have different font colors in an Edit control.

That's not entirely true. You can look at the Rich Text Edit stuff and see what you can piece together that way. I think I've seen Lazy Cat do it, but I've never used it, so I couldn't be 100% sure on it.

You can not have multiple font colors in a native Edit control. RichText control, sure, no problem.
