Description nicolas.rolland 2013-01-12 05:24:13 UTC
In a fsx file in monodevelop, (*) makes the syntax highlight switch to comment code, until the next (*).
This should not be the case, as it referes to the operator multiply, and not to a comment.

Exemple  :

let partial n = (*) n 
this is some text that is hightlighted as a comment while it should not be the case  
let partial2 n = (*) n 

let IamHighlightednormally = 0 

Correct behaviour for comment is available here :
