Color-coding lookup values


When working with picklist options, you can assign charting colors. Is there a way to do this for Lookups?


Our Opportunities have a Lookup to a custom object, Program, which internally has a designated color (Program A gets yellow folders, Program B gets green, etc. . .) When reporting on Opportunities we would like to assign these "standard" colors to the programs.

Is this possible?

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

You may not be able to edit the lookup itself, unless you do a bit of javascript hacking, but how about an IMAGE formula field to show the colour coding
