colored alphabet for string output

Dear Group:

I have a long list of alphabetic strings.  I would like to ouput this list,
with each of the letters of the string colored differently.  How could I do
this?

For example:

myList = {"abcdefg","hijklmn","prstuv"};

myList/.{x_String -> StringReplace[x, "a" -> StyleForm["a", FontColor ->
Red]]}

I was thinking to hodgepodge together statements like this, but it doesn't
work because StringReplace requires objects with head String, and my attempt
has an object with head StyleForm.

Any advice?
