There currently is no support for code completion or other analysis
features for python code embedded in an xml file. As for syntax
highlighting, Wing uses the scintilla editing component and any
scintilla lexer can be used by Wing. The xml / html lexer does provide
some support for ASP style files. It could be modified to support your
language or a new lexer written in C++.
We do plan on improving support for python embedded in xml or other
files in future Wing versions.
