For this you need to alter the grammar.
There is one root grammar for your document, e.g. HTML for a HTML file.
This grammar will match tags like <style> and <script> and either
include another grammar or put special rules only active inside this
If you want text between <pre>…</pre> to be marked up as Processing.js
then you need to alter the HTML grammar to match <pre> tags and
include a processing grammar for these (or define it inline).
