To add a little weight behind this, I'd point out that a particularly large and widely used django app (really, django conglomerate) - edX (code.edx.org) - uses mako templates.  Yes, django. Yes, mako.

Hi there.
I'm using Wing5 beta, and enjoying it so far. I've been a long-time customer of Wing; since at least 2005, and I'm happy to see continuous momentum in my favorite python IDE.

I use Mako templates, and find Wing's support for this to be rather atrocious. 
I realize that it might be a hard problem, since a single mako file will happily contain HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Python. I'm not expecting debugging support, or even click-to-symbol, but can I at least ask for passable syntax highlighting?

Where mako files jump from one syntax to another is pretty obviously delineated, but wing seems to miss often/always. It doesn't even know comment syntax, and likes to highlight keywords in my comments in <style> declarations in html; this actually is WORSE than no syntax highlighting at all.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to make this work a little better.

Thanks for Wing; I hope this doesn't sound to b!tchy. I want badly to stay in one editor, and not have to bounce-out to a dumb editor for css/mako/html.
