OK, I posted this on the IRC this morning, but just thought it should  
be more widely acknowledged so hence the post here to illustrate the  
speed improvements. (tests done on iMac G5 1.8Ghz 1.25GB RAM on X.4 )

PHP Syntax TestBed Document: (with every word, function, operators  
etc. in it = roughly 4000 words to highlight )

1.1b8 = ~30 sec's
1.1b9 = ~3 - 4sec's

PHP Syntax TestBed 2 Document: (a 3836 lines of code 'adodb.inc.php'  
class doc):

1.1b8 = 50 sec's;
1.1b9 = ~4 - 5 sec's

The above times are with all the PHP functions enabled in the PHP  
syntax. Without those roughly 4000 function keywords the render time  
is cut in half more or less.

While I haven't checked all the other syntaxes, I do think the PHP  
syntax is the most taxing syntax out there.

Kind regards,
