Thanks Detlev and Well Done for producing those files. They make script editing much easier.

I chose TP_Mp3tag_syn for TextPad. You might like to know that following the TextPad 5 Help instructions to use your .syn file fails with the error:

Error accessing 'Mp3tag.syn'
C:\Program Files\TextPad 5\System\Mp3tag.syn was not found..

Here's a procedure that works on TextPad 5 (possibly not on other versions).

1 Go to https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=387B58366897...6897AC93%211765, download TP_Mp3tag_syn.zip and launch.
2 Launch HKCU.Software.Helios.TextPad 5.Document Classes.Mp3tag.reg and accept the prompts (note: this changed my Font settings and possibly others, but for .mte files only)
3 Copy Mp3tag.syn to e.g. C:\Program Files\TextPad 5\system not \Samples as instructed by TextPad Help.
4 In TextPad Configure Preferences "Document Classes" Mp3tag Syntax, checkmark Enable syntax highlighting and set Syntax definition file: to Mp3tag.syn
5 In that same dialog click Open and verify it does open (in TextPad) the .syn file
6 In Fonts, Tabulation etc. make any necessary restorations to settings that 1) changed.
7 Click OK.

Perhaps you'd like to add that to Mp3tag.syn.readme.txt .

For Text pad 6:

  1. Mp3tag.syn works
  2. The .reg file and hence my procedure do not work. (TextPad 6 no longer keeps settings in the registry.)

PPS Anyone considering updating to TextPad 7 beware - 7's rexgep format is incompatible with 6 and earlier's.
