#501 XML file doesnt get well parsed = folding error.

Filetypes (68)

Geany doesnt parse correctly the following tag (DefaultFormat):
-----------------begining of copied section of an xml file-----------------------

some content


<![CDATA[{{depend prefix}}{{var prefix}} {{/depend}}{{var firstname}} {{depend middlename}}{{var middlename}} {{/depend}}{{var lastname}}{{depend suffix}} {{var suffix}}{{/depend}}, {{var street}}, {{var city}}, {{var region}} {{var postcode}}, {{var country}}]]>
------ end copied section of a xml file ----------------

after the Defaultformat tag, following tags (and tags opened before defaulttag) will not find a right ending ... and therefore folding will not work propertly.
I supose its a bug with geany ... because it works on other editors.
I am using geany 0.18 installed over Ubuntu 9.10 Server.

Kind Regards,

Raul Armando Salamanca Gonzalez

    This is a Scintilla bug.
    Scintilla is the editing component we use in Geany. It be nice if you
    would report this to the Scintilla project. Use this link:

    And maybe post a link to the created bug report here for reference.
    Thank you.

    Seems to be fixed in Geany 1.23 (git >= c05f1bd).
