Yes, i know it. It can be done only in 'context default' section (as Stephen 
made). But in this case another syntax cann't be complitely described.

But this context did not allowed inside php program (inside <? ?>). PHP will 
show error (Parse error) if <! ... > context (and even any html tag) appear 
in program. In my syntax rules all text outside <? ?> have one color. And if 
it need to be highlighted, we must set colors as html text. This require 
extend syntax rules definition, and add ability to include another syntax 
rules depends of context.
