Coding editor with SPSS syntax highlighting

I am also writing webpages, and code (X)HTML and PHP by hand. If you code by hand, any code, and also SPSS syntax code, than it is very usefull to have syntax highlighting. Syntax highlighting is a feature of text / code editors that highlights or colourises code. By colourizing code you can very easily recognise types of code.

Recently in the SPPS newsgroup (comp.soft-sys.stat.spss, read it with Google Groups) there has been a discussion or question started by Aldo Cimino on this matter. The answers in the discussion where pointing at the FAQ of SPSSTools.net where you can find an explanation on using Textpad to edit SPSS syntax. ZEUS Editor also supports adding a new language to their definitions. VIM Editor has a file which supports SPSS Syntax, you could try that one, but the author already mentions it needs updating. Crimson Editor already has a SPSS package ready. If you decide to use one of the mentioned tools, or have other suggestions, please let us know! We would be happy to publish your experiences.
