Description Petr Hrebejk 2006-09-27 18:25:27 UTC
Shouldn't java class names be somehow syntax highlighted? Or am I imagining that?

(btw, note the line number in the screen shot - Retouche scales pretty well)

	AFAIK, it is not supposed to be colored right now. But FooBar in "new FooBar()"
should be colored as a method (in bold) - this is a bug.

Another question is if the class name should be colored or not - I do not have
any opinion, it is simple to color it, if decision is made.

The "new FooBar()" should be colored now. I think that the second question can
be considered to be an enhancement.
