For your information:

BBedit has been updated to version 8.6, and the TeX module received  
some (needed) attention. From the release notes:

The TeX language module has been significantly enhanced, with folding  
support, improved section/subsection detection for the function menu,  
much more robust math-mode detection, and greatly enhanced LaTeX  
support. These changes resolve various reported bugs, as well.

If you wish to place a "marker" in the function menu, you can write a  
comment of the following form:

%: this is a mark

This comment syntax matches that used by TeXShop.

The new TeX module also includes some support for ConTeXt, in the  
form of recognition and generation of fold ranges for \startXXX... 
\stopXXX environments, and special-case support for the "mode"  
environment (we ignore the contents of the mode environment, because  
it often contains out-of-order environment start/stop commands which  
can confuse the parser).

(end quote)

There are more changes, but this is it for TeX. The update is free  
for 8.5 users.

notify you if the record has pornographics material or material  
glorifying violence?" Tipper Gore  : "No, there is nothing that would  
suggest that to me." Frank Zappa  : "I would say that a buzz saw  
blade between the guy's legs on the album cover is good indication  
that it's not for little Johnny." -- The Senate Commerce Committee
