Oops sorry not the Mode files the highlight files found here in

The code you are looking for as you run through the line characters is
something like this...

  If sChar = "{" Or If sChar = "}" Then
TextHighlighter.Add(Highlight.Operator, 1)

Like i say though i didn't start from the ground up with what I did so i'm
not sure how to properly initiate the highlighting routine
