Hello,
Coloring building names was disabled somewhere around 2006, but it was still possible to bypass it by putting HTML in sign alteration projects until recently.
I've changed it so it's no longer possible. The only place where HTML formatting is allowed are the note contents.

It caused some pretty game breaking things to happen when people wrote bad code. It also made a mess of the pull down menu for buildings and vehicles. I'm glad it's been disabled.

I always loved colorful names. There's a town somewhere with all names colored following the same pattern, and another where each building has a color, and both are wonderful!
