For some things like Markdown or Textile syntax or some uncommon language constructs (single quote in Lisp, triple quotes in Python), the current syntax highlighter isn't really suitable.

I think I found a solution that will add excellent syntax highlighting with theme support and eventually also support for code completion. It will probably take some time to implement though.

Ah, the trials of iOs development.

It's not an Objective-C solution, but perhaps some kind of Webkit integration and the MPL'd Ace editor (written in Javascript) would help?

Although I'll warrant that's not what you were hoping for.
Thank you, but I think I found a great solution for a future version of Textastic. I've updated the feedback accordingly.
