We are trying to get codemirror (from jupyter-notebook) to highlight non-english words in an attempt to create an environment for a non-english programming language. For now, I started out by just editing the language definitions for python in
codemirror/mode/python/python.js (to just get my legs wet)
For some reason when I add something like “eee” and “eeé” to one of the variables like
commonKeywords (that contain a list of python keywords), “eee” ends up being bolded/colored while “eeé” does not. Any non plain-english characters seem to break the highlighting.
Do you have any suspensions to why that is?
