    2) Pandoc invokes the skylight Haskell library, which uses XML syntax descriptions to define which tokens/pieces of a given language have which "role". Skylight will parse your code and tag each part of it according to those rules. You can edit those XML files (or create new ones). Check this page for a description of how they work. You'll find the existing KDE XML syntax descriptors here.
