Highlighting of types does not always work (example form highlight editor) the string is highlighted but if you change it to String it does not highlight.
// This is an example
public static void Main (String args)
Console.WriteLine ("Hello World");
"string" is a builtin C# type, it can always be highlighted.
Highlighting "String" correctly requires semantic highlighting.
Is then semantic highlighting not supported then, even if it is an option in the Code Highlighting Menu?
Pretty sure semantic highlighting option was removed for 2.8, because it had server performance problems. It was rewritten for 2.9 and enabled by default.
