    I have a gripe with the way EmEditor does syntax highlighting. It seems like the parser isn’t very intelligent and just finds a matching string regardless of CONTEXT. Notepad++ is much more intelligent. Here are two pictures to show you what I mean. Keywords, etc are syntaxed logically in notepad++ and not here. Notepad++ can determine user functions. I would like to see this changed because I think you have a decent text editor. If it is possible to change the matching behavior for highlighting I would appreciate an explanation.

    Proper syntax highlighting in notepad++: Notice only print() by itself is highlighted:
