As the title says....adding syntax highlighting would (hopefully?) be a fairly small change but extremely useful when making small edits to scripts in the Survey123 Connect interface. I have found it often works smoother to edit the scripts within Connect, rather than a separate IDE that does offer syntax highlighting.

As we can see, right now it's all just black text, which isn't as easy to visually parse out.

That would be pretty nice!

Currently, I use VS Code for this, and I just have a workspace that connects to the My Survey Designs folder so that I can access any of the forms' scripts, but there are certainly times when I'd rather edit the script in Connect.
