"is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL
For odd languages and extensions like Velocity *.vm and BIRT *.rptdesign which are almost but not exactly like their base languages HTML and XML, respectively, the editor can be customized to recognize these extensions and highlight syntax:
Settings > Style Configurator... + highlight language like HTML for Velocity + add a user extension "vm" to the "user ext." list.
Now *.vm files will highlight like HTML, where Velocity extensions appear as comments.
Settings > Style Configurator... + highlight language like XML for BIRT + add a user extension "rptdesign" to the "user ext." list.
Now *.rptdesign files will highlight like XML.
