That's why I usually use the html suggestion that Mark S. provided. 
After getting the htmltext of the field, you can replace all instances 
of the target word with color tags in one line of code. Then set the 
htmltext of the field to the resulting value of the variable:

get the htmltext of fld "what"
replace "finalSolution666" with "<font color=" &quote& 
"#FF0000"&quote&">finalSolution666</font>" in it
set the htmltext of fld "what" to it
