Subject: ANNOUNCE: OCaml syntax colorer for Scintilla/SciTE
A syntax colorer for the multi-platform (Win32 and GTK+/Linux) 
Scintilla editing component and SciTE text editor is available at

Source, SciTE properties file and Windows DLL are included (not to 
mention installation instructions).  As the "" file is 
easily edited, and especially because this is an *initial* release, 
feedback on anything besides my choice of colors is welcome! :)

Note that it does properly handle nested OCaml comments (but not 
mis-matched comment delimiters in strings in comments...), but does 
not currently implement the Scintilla "folding" operation - between 
the syntactic richness/complexity of OCaml itself and the variety of 
coding styles, it was not immediately obvious if any folding strategy 
would please anybody!  Again, comments *are* solicited.

The license is the same as Scintilla and SciTE - free usage for any 
type of project - see the included License.txt from the Scintilla and 
SciTE sites for details.
