Is there a way to render custom filetypes as HTML and add custom tags to the syntax highlighter?

Hi all.

Working with Apache Velocity (.vm) files. These are mostly HTML but contain a few Velocity-specific lines like #set($foo = 'bar') or #if(condition) ... #end etc.

I can set up a new file association in WebStorm to handle .vm files and highlight these tags, but then the HTML doesn't get highlighted. I can configure WebStorm to treat .vm files as HTML, but then I can't add Velocity's custom tags to the (locked) HTML definition.

Is there some way I can combine these two features and get syntax highlighting for Velocity to work properly?

Basically, no.

We have full Velocity support in IntellJ IDEA Ultimate (wich also supports PHP, Java, Ruby, Python plus a ton of other languages via plugins).

Is there a complete list of the languages support with Velocity? I've searched on google and on the wiki of what I think is the correct velocity project but can't find it.

I just installed IntelliJ 11 and the support for ASP is no better than in WebStorm or PHPStorm. Wish you would enable better support for Classic ASP/VBScript in your IDE's. Or at least allow us to make custom changes.
