Is it possible to set a rule up so a certain word, such as elephant always gets highlighted in a certain color in Microsoft Word?

To put it into context elephant is a business name (hypothetical), I have set up auto correct so it is always lower case, but in the document I want it to appear blue everywhere...


Open word

Type out a fake sentence This is a test to see if WORD changes to blue

Highlight "WORD" and then change its color to blue.

Then click on File -> Options -> Proofing -> AutoCorrect Options... -> AutoCorrect Tab

Under Replace text as you type make sure the word you highlighted is in the right column. Make sure you have Formatted Text selected. Then on the left side where it has Replace type the word you want to have replaced.

For example if you now type "WORD" it will replace it with "WORD" in blue.
