well, it's not the same, `....`_ says that it's `[^`]*`_ (roughly) and 
also works.

whereas in the comments, it's not done the same way, and explicitely 
says which chars can be used.

maybe the same can be done for the comments (I mean the footer 
instructions) but I've not the time to investigate, syntax files beeing 
what they are ...

If you have time to patch them, I'll be happy to integrate it. but IMHO, 
the bug here is not really the syntax file, but really the fact that \w 
and friends are not utf-8 aware. the syntax file is correct.
