Sorry for jumping off-topic, but I need to ask something: is SynEdit a
reliable highlighting editor? The reason I ask is that I understood that
"IBConsolation" was using SynEdit, too and short after I used some IB syntax
that included a quoted field with an embedded quote, the IBConsole editor
puked (okay, not very polited word) and I observed the following:

expcted colors in text before problem
conflicting identifier, ex: "a quote "" inside"
all the rest of the script in blue

If you put a space between the two inner quotes, the editor is happy but IB
will complain, because here "" is a scape sequence, you change the meaning
if you put such a blank in the middle.
