Syntax highlighting

    i'm testing screem these days and i think i've found what
    i'm looking :)
    However i got a question:
    since i use to edit files which i give the extension tmpl
    (for the HTML::Template perl modul) i would like to have screem recognizing it as a new mime-type. Is it something
    that i can do on my own (as a user) or does it need more than that ?
    Thank you

      Very simple to do.

      From the Gnome Control Center select mime-types, find text/html in the list of mime-types and select edit.  In the entry beneath the extensions type tmpl, then select add

        well having said the above this would make it highlight as html, to do proper highlighting would require a syntax file writing.

        Look in $HOME/.screem/syntax for examples.  However some  of the html features may not work this way as there are still some hardcoded checks for html/sgml/xml files.
