There are quite a few improvements since that version. I suggest you
upgrade as soon as I release version 4.86c.

It's true, the tag highlighting in NoteTab Pro is not optimized for php
code. The highlighting in the current version has been optimized for speed
and I plan to keep it this way. However, as Jody mentioned, proper php
highlighting will be offered in an upcoming programmers editor I am
developing together with NoteTab 5.0.
