Hi,

* Scintilla ist just awesome !! *

I'm using SciTE for programming in C++.

Currently, the original cpp-lexer only supports 3 sets of keywords ("1", "2" and "4" -- "keywords3" should work in comments to highlight doxygen tags, but it doesn't IMHO). Is it possible to extent the lexer to more keyword lists (say 4,5,6) ?
That would be great!

Thank you in advance,

Til

    There is no particular correct number of keyword lists and there may need to be more specific types of keyword lists. It is unlikely I will work on this.

    The cpp lexer now supports substyles which should be used for this.
