If that's the same thing as syntax highlighting, yeah. 
GWD Text Editor.

IIRC, about $30. 

By default, it's good but not great. If you have "abcd" 
the first will get highlighted, the second won't. It doesn't 
understand escaping in regular expressions, either. But I think
both of those could be fixed if I'd make the slightest effort.

Lots of languages have their syntax highlighting already
defined, but not only can you change it, you can add 
other languages, and define the syntax highlighting you 
want for them as well.
