#1 Is it possible to define a multi-highlighter?

The builtin highlighters work quite well and I wonder how to best support highlighting files that contain multiple languages in the autotest context. This has the "autotest syntax" and another language defined within. Short example:


### GnuCOBOL Test Suite

AT_SETUP([cobc with standard configuration file])
AT_KEYWORDS([configuration misc])

AT_DATA([prog.cob], [
IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
PROGRAM-ID. prog.
AUTHOR. tester.
DATA DIVISION.
WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
PROCEDURE DIVISION.
STOP RUN.
])

# default configuration permits this extension
AT_CHECK([$COMPILE_ONLY prog.cob], [0], [],
[prog.cob: 4: warning: AUTHOR is obsolete in GnuCOBOL
])

AT_CLEANUP

Is it possible to define something like this (one language "outside", another one "inside") or is the only option to define an autotest syntax highlighter (feature-request, wink, wink) and switch between this one and the highlighter for the "included" language?

Not bow. When I will change editor engine, it will be possible. All highlighters will be external
