Veering somewhat offtopic, but last time I checked, SciTE does have
lexer support for Haskell, it just doesn't actually include (for
unknown reasons) a language properties file to go with it. If you give
it one, syntax highlighting mostly works. You can write your own if
you like--the .properties files have a pretty simple
"property.name=value" syntax, which is mildly amusing in the context
of this email thread--or borrow someone else's, such as this one:
http://www4.in.tum.de/~haftmann/resources/haskell.properties A few
tweaks in the global properties are required to get everything
working--I don't remember the details, but it didn't take me long to
figure it out.
Also, on Windows, I'm aware of at least Notepad++ that has some very
basic syntax highlighting for Haskell working out of the box. It's
based on Scintilla, as well, so should feel comfortable to someone
accustomed to SciTE.
