No, there is no way in EditPlus. The reason is that the Syntax Highlighting engine (as far as I can tell) parses the line first into tokens, based on the "word delimiting characters." There is no imaginable universe where the space is not a word delimiting character. Therefore, by the time a token is compared to the "comment on" character, it has been stripped of spaces.

Sorry, but other than using the #LINECOMMENT directive, there is no way to directly match the end of character line. Unfortunately, the Syntax Highlight configurations take only strings, not regular expressions.
