Too bad, I used nothing but Emacs for > 15 years. But more recently, emacs simply has become a "museum piece" compared to other excellent editors. So I switched some years ago.

Perhaps your syntax highlighting could be imported into more popular coding editors?
Like notepad++ for Windows or Kate for Linux (powerfull syntax highlighting engine, extensible via xml files.) or... Both allow for entirely customizable highlighting rules. These editors are MUCH easier to customize than emacs...

Oops, I forget link to download, fixed first post.

:) Yes, other editors are much easy, and they are real editors. emacs have all but have no editor.
I think there no problem to get keywords from here for example.

Very cool! I still use emacs for some tasks. Can I put your ssc/stc/dsc mode on the Celestia Wikibook too?

There's a typo in the .emacs code: .dso should be .dsc (see not oh)
