The command localize will strip all HTML tags from your stringtable.xml entries, however there is a way to trick it by substituting tags with HTML code instead:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Key ID="STR_TEST_KK">
	<Original><![CDATA[<t color='#ff0000'>This doesn't work</t>]]></Original>
</Key>
<Key ID="STR_TEST_KK2">
	<Original>&lt;t color='#ff0000'&gt;This works&lt;/t&gt;</Original>
</Key>

hint parseText localize "str_test_kk"; //no change of colour hint parseText localize "str_test_kk2"; //hint content is in red
