There is a small error in Rebol language syntax highlighting about strings.
A string is delimited or by "" or by {}, and this works:

mystring: "example"
mystring2: {other example}

Unfortunately the ^ char is an escaping char, so ^{ or ^} are not opening or closing strings, so the following example has a bad highlighting:

mystring3: { test ^} }

    Fixing bugs with individual languages only occurs when someone volunteers the work. I won't be working on this myself.
