I need to have a syntax highlighter for a language of mine.

I really like Scite, so I was wondering how to support a custom syntax with it.

SciTE is based on the open source Scintilla edit control. The Scintilla documentation has two articles that explain how to write a lexer, their term for the part of the program that performs syntax highlighting, along with other information necessary use to them.
