Description tkellerer 2001-01-12 09:23:30 UTC
It would be nice if the syntax highlighting could be turned on/configured
for files other than the "hardcoded" ones.
(this would include the ability to create new object types to which
a color scheme could be attached, e.g. with a list of keywords)

Hanzi, is this covered by Schliemann? Have we got or are planning to have some sort of a wizard or other GUI that would
let users set up their own language easily? Shall I reassign this to languages/ui or something? Thanks.
