It seems to be the syntax coloring that is possible is as follows:

You can have seperate colors for each of the following items. I have
specified the colors I have  but they are user modifiable
to some extent depending on the package:


comments  (red)

\anything (blue)

$anything between dollars$  (green)



comments (red)

\anything (blue)

{ } $ $ but not what is between them (green)



Same as TeXShop basically.

I guess Alpha is very modifiable if you can write TcL.

Some of the detail is different. In Alpha \$ is black green
in TeXShop \$ is blue green.

Does this fit with everyones experience? It would seem the only
change that BBEdit needs is to not colour the whole of a
string between $ just $'s and }'s
