I was wondering how somebody might be able to do the recognizing text between the php tags and making it into colored text in its own colored area like codingforums has done.

This is better done with server-side coding. PHP or ASP or JSP or whatever.

It *can* be done in JS coding, but since you will need to pull the data from a database or whatever, why not do it server-side?
