Showing issue with match_parent in CheckBox control

The legacy constant fill_parent appears to have been superceded by match_parent (Quote: "This constant is deprecated starting from API Level 8 and is replaced by match_parent." from http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/ViewGroup.LayoutParams.html). However the Xamarin Studio does not always recognize match_parent, thus the color/paint effect on the display of the axml source is corrupted, at least it is with a CheckBox control, as is shown in the attached screen grab.

This seems to be a problem in the text editor syntax highlighting engine. Can you provide the source of the axml file?
