Underscore in 3.9

The syntaxHighlightingAsYouType* Preferences relate to the Shout package, which
is NOT  part of the 3.9 release. As you say, the preference values have been
fixed in the squeak-dev image (which includes Shout), and are also fixed in the
latest squeaksource version of Shout.

Unfortunately, the SqueakMap version of Shout is not up-to-date, and has the old
(confusing) default preference values. I will soon update the SqueakMap release
with the latest from squeaksource, and then everything should be ok.

Stef & Marcus,

would it be possible to change all syntaxHighlightingAsYouType*
Preferences to values that do not cause confusion for beginners.

This was already done so for the Squeak-dev image.

Thank you very much in advance!
