Yes, Allan, you are correct as usual, as Jeroen's suggestion does not 
solve the problems. Mind you, even with my 'bug' I have separate 
.className, #idName, htmlKeyword and :psuedo-class highlighting that is 
not in the standard CSS. (just checked and re-read the comments in 
there ;) )  As I see it, this whole thing will work better after b6 (or 
later) anyway, so I'm not too bothered. It works and if it enforces a 
better coding style by the user then that's a good thing in my book.

Thanks, and if I have the time, energy and some help, you've only seen 
the tip of the iceberg so far.  I would love to have complete XHTML 
code blocks, CSS styles, browser (= Win IE) workarounds etc. etc. as 
ready snippets. Not to mention JS scripts ready to go.  "Want a 
style-switcher? Here you are.." type of thing

Did anyone notice my subtle drumming on about the "help" bit ? ;-)

Kind regards,
