How to change text color or other attribute of Limited text in text area.


for example:

text area is displaying

Azrael Noor is a Beautiful man.

I want to bold and color it read, denoting it an error, so that client could change it to Handsome.

How to Bold and Color red of "Beautiful" inside text area?

You can not change the text color in a textarea for just a single word. You need to use a rich editor [WYSIWYG]. There are a bunch of them out there.
