That sounds right.
So does this mean the scope should be text.latex, or source.tex, or
Interesting… well, I don’t do much LaTeX so I don’t have any strong
feelings about this. But not coloring strings does seem a little
strange, I think stand-alone double quotes would be rather rare.
So I think we should let go of the single quotes (in pairs), but
still keep double quoted strings, but then include $base inside the
string, to still get normal LaTeX parsing.
I went ahead and committed this change. The weird thing now however
is that if I type a dollar sign inside the double-quoted string, it
does not do smart inserting of the corresponding closing dollar sign.
Is this just a problem in my installation somehow?
There was some weird matching of things of the form \. where dot is
anything taking place in the syntax for double-quoted strings, which
I removed since I did not see what it was good for. It just messed
with all commands. I just had the patterns include $base.
Btw, perhaps the double-quoted strings should be moved to source.tex?
After all, they are valid in TeX.
