Trying to see if there are any Sublime plugins available for "marking" or "token syntax highlighting". I haven't had any luck with searches mostly due to the commonly used words in the name...
For Vim, there is a nice plugin called Mark (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1238) to achieve this functionality.
In Notepad++, there is built in tool called syntax tokens (see attached image).
Thanks for the help!
