Following up my own post.
If I copy and paste (using the clipboard) to a new file and save it with
file name foo.pyw the syntax highlighting works.
But then when I run the code in the new file it fails. When I compare with
the original file, it says the whole file is different.
If then SaveAs but using the existing file name
(sequential_clearance_main.pyw), overwriting it the original, the syntax
I've figuring something clever with the line ends is happening.
