I am tyring to figure out how sytax highlighting is accomplished in Java based IDE's such as Forte and JEdit. I have looked through some of the source for JEdit and NetBeans but I am having problems locating the code that I need. Anyone have any links that show this or know how to do it themselves?
Thanks!

I have looked and looked too, I did find a couple of good examples. The follwing one seemed to be the best. Syntax highlighting isn't trivial and will require threads and parser/grammers, so have fun.
