What syntax highlighting would you recommend for writing spreadsheet formulas, like those used in Excel, Google Sheets, Numbers, etc?

# Syntax for spreadsheet formulas

**FichteFoll**#2

This syntax is inspired by Tex/LaTeX, if I remember correctly. The easiest way would be to use the LaTeX syntax and wrap your formulas in `$`

, i.e. `$a^{b+x}$`

.

Thanks for the suggestion @FichteFoll, but it doesn’t pickup syntax very well. So far C seems to do the best job, but picks up on very little.
