Yes. We will have to solve some problems with the keyboard definitions,
and we will see what to do with clipboard support, but this problems
will be solved.

Oops... The highlighters still are part of Kassandra, whereas I have
moved the SHEdit widget to KCL. I will move the highlighters to the
SHEdit sources.
The Pascal highlighter can be found in kassandra/src/vw_pas.pp.

Yes, there is a working XML highlighter in Kassandra, it is included in
the 1999/08/29 snapshot (file kassandra/src/vw_xml.pp).
