I had similar problem and I solved it without script. Solution is little bit non-engineer as I didn't have time to spend it searching for better solution but it works :)

There are two columns, one that is drop down choices, which is hidden from View and one multiline text NOTE: rich content checked so you can enter HTML. the second column is hidden from content type but is visible in View.

Then I created WF in designer like this: If chosen Option 1 from drop down, use function set field to value, and put HTML code to multiline column. If option 2 is chosen, again put different HTML code. HTML code I got like this, I opened new item wrote text I wanted to be shown (It was same text from option 1 from drop down menu) and colored it to color I needed. Then I bluemark that text and clicked on edit source at Format text tab.
