Hi there!

It would be great to have syntax highlighting in Math...
Everything from importance is in the .odt file.

Complety right.
Even Gedit use sintax hilight.

It is very hard when you have a lot og {{{((( to understand where you are in the formula and when to close a braket/graph

Could help a lot in formula writing

I'll start to work in this bug. Do you have some code pointers?
I was taking a look on EditEngine and EditView sources. I think we have to implement this on these classes, right?

No idea (regarding codepointer) Anyone?
Feel free to ask @ libreoffice-dev IRC channel @ freenode
