@JulieBYou can't do this with a Text Block. However, you can put your text in a Markdown Block or a Code Block and change the formatting of portions of the text within it.

For example, in a Markdown Block type

Roses are <span style="color:red">red</span>, violets are <span style="color:blue">blue</span>.

Here's a useful guide on the Markdown Block.

I hope that helps!

I've created Squint, a plugin for Squarespace that allows for custom styles, more headings, superscript, subscript, underline and more. You can select a single word in the middle a sentence, a list item, a paragraph, or whatever - like you'd expect with most WYSIWYG editors.

So if it's something you're doing fairly often, or you don't want to have to work within a markdown or code block, it's another option.
