FYI - Pygments is a syntax highlighter.  The request was for rendering.

Lots of Python applications have been
receiving documentation in reStructuredText format
(http://docutils.sourceforge.net/rst.html); The reason for this
is simple: this format's primary focus is for Python
documentation, specially docstrings. So Sphinx uses it, and Read
The Docs uses it - and a great deal of applications have their
docs hosted in RTD nowadays -.

So I'd like to propose that WinIDE implements reStructuredText
parsing to be shown in parts of the IDE, like the Source
Assistant, for example; This will improve te way the developers
see their documentation, or documentation of other packages.

This is something we'ld like to add but I'm not sure when we'll
get to working on it.  I'd also like to syntax highlight ReST when
seen in the editor (at least for ReST-only files if not in the
docstrings).  If someone writes a lexer for Scintilla we would
just incorporate it.  But I realize you're asking for rendering in
Source Assistant and not syntax highlighting...

Thanks for the feedback!

According to the website Pygments supports ReST, and just about
every other thing.
