If you're using Word 97, you get the 16 colors you see. For anything else,
you need WordArt.

For later versions, you can select font colors from the More Colors item at
the bottom of the font color dropdown on the toolbar (or in Format Font).
However, there's no easy way to make that selection permanent so that you
could apply it elsewhere.

- You can save a custom-colored character in AutoText or AutoCorrect, which
you can later insert, select, and overtype to get text of that color.

- You can make a note of the Red, Green, and Blue numbers in the custom
color dialog when you select the color, and make a macro that applies that
color to selected text with a statement like

Selection.Font.Color = RGB(46, 185, 200)

In addition to the methods Jay suggests, you can define a character style
using your custom color. It need not apply anything other than the color to
the Default Paragraph Font of any paragraph style.
