is there a way to ignoe coloring rules (i.e plain text), but by you code output text in a particular color (like you can for a richedit). the context is i'm implmenting a console type application where code can write text in various colors, however i don't think could be embedded in any type of "highlighting" logic in the XML file.

While you can use span indicators to modify ranges of text, the more you use the more performance will degrade. SyntaxEditor is designed to be an editor or display for syntax-highlighted text, whereas RichEdit controls are not meant to follow any "rules" for highlighting text. So both are different designs that are used for different scenarios.
