The $Syntax directive provides an alternative to using the Syntax Highlighting page of the Preferences dialog to set the case and style for function names and keywords. It also provides a convenient method to set the syntax hightlighting preferences for each individual file. The format of the $Syntax directive is
$Syntax OFF/ON Keywords(case, style) FuncNames(case, style)
case can be one of following: (ASTYPED, LOWERCASE, UPPERCASE, 1STLETTERUC)
and style can be one of the following: (PLAIN, ITALIC, BOLD, UNDERLINE, BOLDITALIC)
$Syntax Keywords(lowercase, bold) FuncNames(1stLetterUC, bolditalic)
$Syntax FuncNames(asTyped, bold)
Note that the time required to compile the equations is necessarily longer when Syntax Highlighting is on. If compiling speed is an issue, turn Syntax Highlighting off.
