Well, comment highlighting doesn't seem to work for me, at least not reliably all the time.

Could someone please check out the image Squeak4.2-10740-alpha at:
<https://public.me.com/kbrown> in the Squeak4.2Test folder, and let me know if they are seeing the "commented out" in the two Workspaces, properly colored a shade of green like the two lines in the Workspace that has more text? At least I see those two lines properly colored as comment.

The image is a fresh Squeak4.2-10548-alpha which only has had 'Update Squeak' done to update 10740.

Also I see that syntax highlighting can be turned off in the Workspace windowbar menu, although the default appears to be set to on, but there is a preference called Subdued syntax highlighting that is on as well.
