XML syntax highlighting crashes on "Script" tag.
XML syntax highlighting crashes on the “Script” tag.
This behavior is default to Scintilla (the editing component that Notepad++ uses). The reason it does this is because Scintilla treats XML and HTML pretty much the same. The “Script” tag is special to HTML which contains code…so it highlights anything within the “Script” tag differently, but in this case it should treat it as normal XML. You should report this issue over at the Scintilla project page.
