    yes and no -

    Notepad++ is a plain text editor, so it can not change the formatting of the document.

    It can highlight text according to different rules (such as programming language syntax). This will only affect how the text is displayed in Notepad++; the formatting is not saved with the file.

    if you want to color different parts of a text field, you will need to use a more advanced text editor, like windows' wordpad, but then you have to save the file as RTF (rich text format).
