Multiple font colors in a single cell

Our group just recently started using OneDrive for collaboration of an Excel document that we use on a daily basis. However, when trying to edit the document in the Browser, only one color can be applied to a cell. When using Excel in a local file, you can have more than one font color in a single cell by highlighting the targeted words in the cell and then choosing a different color.

Recommendation: Make it possible to have multiple colors in a cell when editing an Excel document in browser like you can do in a local file.

    This is the second most annoying issue of Excel Online (the other one is not being able to insert copied rows between rows). I have lots of different colors and formats in my cells.
