Formats a JSON string with color.
This colorizes an existing JSON text to show to user.
Keys get blue, text value purple, numbers and others orange and brackets black.

Text is returned only with colors. You can apply text font and font size with normal FileMaker functions.
Processing time is linear to length, so should be faster than custom functions.

Set Field [ Data::JSON ; MBS("JSON.Colorize"; Data::JSON) ]
