Darn thing doing what I told it to do... Guess that means I did
something right :)
But it is not what I am wanting.
I first thought to make it look for a space but that would not work when
a single character like "#" is to be colored if there is a "string" of
them. Or if all of the characters between quotes are to be colored.
I always did like puzzles!
