      I may have worked out the problem, perhaps - and it's the xml files I'm
      looking at.

      The dtd/schema is poor - with lots of attributes which should be elements
      - so each element gets very long, and perhaps Vim keeps it together??

      Anyway - synmaxcol is working well.

      Thanks,
      John
