I'm unable to completely disable syntax highlighting for Java source code files in Notepad++.
I've commented out the Java sections in langs.model.xml and stylers.model.xml (even tried deleting those files to no avail) but if I create a new file and then save a file with .java extension then, bang! syntax colouring kicks in. Grrrrr. any way to do this?
You might think it's an absurd requirement but I'm preparing a Java certification and it's better to practise programming with no syntax help at all but I still like to use Notepad++ because I'm used to it and for its other features (multi-tabbed interface, reopen last used files... etc) instead of crappy plain old win notepad.
