some of the text in one colour, some in another.

Answer: In Motif 1.x, you can't.  Text stores an ordinary string, and points
where `highlights' of various types begin and end.  These highlights are all
the control you have over components of the text.

In the Motif 2.0 CSText widget, XmStrings may be different colors in the same
widget.

Note, however, that the CSText widget was dropped from Motif 2.1.
