(don't know very much about it but afaik...)
Editors like jedit and vim don't actually parse the code, it's only
tokenized so that keywords can be highlighted. They also have some
concept of regions which are defined by a start and end token (or using
regexps in vim) to mark regions such as comments where other
highlighting rules should apply.
