Syntax highlighting

The PovClipse editor shows your scene language file using syntax highlighting. This results in displaying recognized keywords, comments and so on in different colors.

The colors used can be fully configured using the PovClipse preference page ("Window" -> "Preferences", entry "PovClipse" section "Editor").
