I am experience some really wired syntax highlighting with Ruby's HEREDOC syntax in certain cases.

I have attached it below and a rendering of how it highlights on my system. I have reduced it as much as I can but any more and it highlights correctly.

  • It happens for all quote types (EOS, "EOS", 'EOS').
  • The characters on the first line can be removed (but if the line is removed it works).
  • If you play around some characters can be removed.

    This problem also occurs with Scite which indicates that its a Scintilla problem. Scintilla is a separate project (www.scintilla.org) please report the problem there.
