Syntax Coloring of Notes, ToDo, Hack

Would it be possible (in a future release) to have the coloration of these
comments follow over muliple line comments? What I mean is that often, when
I need to add a Note for instance, the comments take two or more lines of
comments to provide the details needed. Currently the highlighting only
happens on the line that the NOTE: is on.
So I end up writting NOTE: on each line. (I know that the same problem
occurs in the Error List window. So this may be a Microsoft issue.)

On a secondary issue related to this, if I have a comment that includes the
work note, then from that point on the hightlighting seem to think that it
is to be changed. Is this the correct behaviour?

In the templates for the notes, todo, etc... you will see that it is simply
a regular expression. Add the colon : to the regular expression after the
word NOTE, TODO etc. I also check the box to make it case sensitive so that
it only matches NOTE:, TODO:, BUG:
