RE: [cdt-dev] Colorize code regions

In my plug-in, I've been using the org.eclipse.resource.markers, org.eclipse.ui.editors.annotationTypes and org.eclipse.ui.editor.markerAnnotationSpecification extension pts to do highlighting of ranges of code.  Basically I create a resource marker on the file and set the starting offset and ending offset attributes and eclipse takes care of highlighting the region.  However the user can change/override your choice of highlighting via Window->Preferences->General->Editors->Text Editors->Annotations.

I'm a bit fuzzy on the details, but I think I had to get the starting/ending offsets from the starting/ending lines from the Document correspoding to the editor input.
