Microsoft Word/font color question

Question
Nancy, Thanks for your willingness to help! I run a non-profit that mentors entrepreneurs towards job creation in Haiti and Honduras. I have a Microsoft Word 2007 form that our business mentors use with their mentees. It has 4 pages of questions that get answered slowly over a period of two years of the mentoring process. It is currently hard to quickly visually differentiate the answers from the questions. I'd like all the questions to be one color and all the answers to be a second color. The questions stay pretty much the same (with occasional updates), so is there a way to lock them into one colored font, whereas all the answers that are written in over time (after each mentoring session) are automatically in the second color. the only way i know to do this is to constantly highlight text and change the color. I'm hoping you have the genius answer to make life easier for me and our mentors as we spur job creation. thanks! evan (creatingjobs.org)
PS: I can email the doc to you if you'd like.

Answer
Evan - I think I understand your question.  But I do not understand why the question part of the document is not simply changed to a different color and saved.  I feel like there is more to this document.

Section breaks are used in creating forms along with lock protecting sections.
