The identifier ones are trivial, they are a simple regex. Heck,
my vim syntax highlight file not only supports them, but uses the
opening as a hint as to what language is embedded:
<!-- highlights this as html! -->
that said though, I don't love them because they must end on a
new line, without indentation. But still, it was easy to
syn region dHTML keepend matchgroup=string start="q\"html$"
And the generic fallback for other identifiers of course is just
syn region dDelimString start=+q"\z(.\)+ end=+\z1"+
syn region dHereString start=+q"\z(\I\i*\)\n+ end=+^\z1"+
vim manages to do it all pretty well....
