This isn't exactly any supported feature anywhere, but I'd thought I'd ask 
cause I would find this very useful: custom highlight blocks.

I'd love the ability to specific parts of my code to a specific code 
highlight type. 

For example: I use a lot of MVC View files with supported ability to capture 
code, and later display it (say, in a layout). The issue is, these capture 
blocks remove the code from my view. If I have captureStart() <some css> 
captureEnd(), I don't have any way to highlight that block as CSS without 
using <style> tags. But using <style>captureStart() ... captureEnd()</style> 
now leaves empty <style></style> tag in the middle of my page, after render.

I'd love some ability to say: /* @content-highlight css */ ... /* 
@content-end */ or something of that nature to invoke the css syntax 
highlight (and thus associated code assist) just for that block of code. In 
essence, the IDE looks for <style> or /* @content-highlight css */ as the 
"CSS Code assist" start point.

Make sense?

It would be a very handy feature working with MVC framework sites (ZFW for 
us). It would also give you a feature I've yet to see in other IDEs.
