    I work in the K language (see KDB or KX Systems). In that language the backslash character is an operator, and double-quotes delimit a string. So if I want to use the backslash operator on a string, the code might look something like this: {function}\"myString" But EmEditor sees the backslash-double-quote sequence as an escaped double-quote, so it colorizes the whole rest of the file as if it were a very long string beginning after “myString” — in K a string can span lines.

    There’s no need to treat backslash-double-quote as an escaped double-quote unless that sequence is inside double quotes.
