That is certainly an element; Although I don't think the highlighter
uses the codetools, as it is based on synedit. The codetools themselves
are much less forgiving about wrong code. It's usually impossible to get
any of the codetools to work if there is an error in the code somewhere,
and not necessarily in the unit that you happen to be working in.
