Syntax coloring for Logo

As far as I know, this is only available in one place--the Java-based Jackal for Cricket microcomputers. Now that MicroWorlds EX Robotics supports the Cricket this is the only reason I'm sticking with Jackal for my 9th graders this year. I think colored syntax is a really important feature of any programmer's software toolkit and an essential type of feedback for someone beginning to learn to program in a text-based environment.
