for example:

Code:

<?php
$html = <<<END
<script type='text/javascript'>
<!--
var blah=1;
//-->
</script>
END;

echo $html;
$flag=true;
...etc
?>


try that code out and you will see that phped starts to greying the wrong codes

is there any chance you could fix that problem in the future release?

geez bad bug. let's be clear about something... the bug is not caused by having "</script>" in the code. it's caused by the syntax highlighting engine and its inability to deal with this particular (and perfectly valid) PHP syntax.

Yep, right. Phped 3.3 highlighter can't handle HEREDOC statements properly. It just ignores them.

in case it helps, i think that 5.0 and 5.5 versions of macromedia homesite had a highlighter that handled it just fine. maybe other versions too, those were the only ones i ever used.

(digression follows...) for that matter, i think those versions of homesite had the best php syntax highlighting i've ever seen by a good margin. it could highlight heredoc strings and had a specific color setting for them. it could highlight both html and php in the same file simultaneously- as opposed to just greying out one or the other.

the best part was, to help you differentiate between html and php code, it could background-highlight all php code. that is, it would do everything between opening and closing php tags in your background color of choice.
