Thanks Neil.
And thanks Nick for pointing out the difficulties text editors have in recognizing what to highlight...

I've recently learned of TextMate and its ability of color syntax

because at my experience level it's better for me to not write overly
contracted command or variable names.

I've followed the instructions for TextMate installation and installing the
Stata bundles, that now properly appear on the Bundles menu list.

However, the command to send a highlighted line of do-file code to Stata
(v10) has no result, there is no outcome in the results window.
Might somebody familiar with the program have troubleshooting tips?

TextMate isn't the only editor to offer syntax highlighting.  See the
following page for more on Stata and text editors....
