In some expansible editors (most I have seen are non-commercial ones) it
is possible to define your own highlighting rules and write macros (or
plug-ins) to talk in some way to other applications (on Windows for
example via DDE or DCOM). I don't know if it is possible with textpad,
because I don't know this editor.

BTW: A *clean* way for the communication between the Editor and R is
also not yet developed for WinEdt ...

Maybe you want to try out ESS for the Emacs, if you don't already use
