If you want them to change color based on the field content, that isn't possible. A static field color can be set in the layout designer.

I believe there is a download in the Developer's Downlaod section that accomplishes exactly this.
Here is the link to the Dynamic Label Control, many thank to Allen for posting it.

Thanks so much for the information! I'm not a really technical person so if you could please confirm that this feature will allow a field to be changed via drop down menu from one color to another depending on which color denotes a particular status. The specific application is for color coding a field depending on if a client is delinquent with tech support fees.

As Allen mentioned in the response in that thread. The control basically checks the value of a field and changes the color/font of the field based on whether or not it meets the criteria. Allen gives a much better explanation in the other thread along with examples.
