How to format a string before appending it into a RichTextBox? Is it possible?

I`m inserting strings in a rich text control using the AppendText method, I
would like to change certain parts of the string so, for example, a certain
word appears bold and red when inserted. Is it possible using this control?

Thanks,
Juan.

Yes, here's an example:

richTextBox.SelectionStart = richTextBox.TextLength;
richTextBox.SelectionColor = Color.Red;
richTextBox.SelectedText = "Red text." + Environment.NewLine;
richTextBox.SelectionColor = Color.Blue;
richTextBox.SelectedText = "Blue text."
