I think that there is a module in the contribs folder of the mac distro
that includes syntax coloring for the Mac IDE....  I fiddled a bit (still
a newbie) with Tkinter and PMW and both seem to work OK (I believe their
limitations are that of Tcl/Tk on the Mac, I would expect that as the
Tcl/Tk Mac port improves so will Tkinter and PMW...).
