I currently have a text formula that creates a list that looks like this:
List("\n",ToText( [Field 1])&" "&"Width",
ToText([Field 2])&" "&"Length",
ToText([Field 3])&" "&"Depth")

I want this list to be colorized so i created a formula like so:
"<span style=\"color:red;font-weight:bold;\">"&  [Colored List]&"</span>"

But when It displays it doesn't display as a list, it simply displays everything in one line.

What am i doing wrong? Thank you.

The \n is a newline character, which works for regular formulas. Once you check the "allow some HTML" you now need to use the HTML new line character. I just tested in a dummy app to confirm this works:
"<span style=\"color:red;font-weight:bold;\">" & List("<br />",[Field1] & " Width",[Field2] & " Length",[Field3] & " Depth") & "</span>"
