Prompted by a thread on the QuakeLive forums asking if there were any programs with syntax highlighting for editing QL configs, and the fact that there isn't, I just went off and made a custom language file for Notepad++.
I went through the configs from the games I play, and added in some extra things to make those work too. It's not perfect and I'm no guru, but it's better than just plain old black text on a white background. The colours need tweaked, but they're workable at the moment.
So yeah, this should provide rough syntax highlighting for your game config files in Notepad++. Screenshots:
Tested with configs from:
- Quake 3 CPMa
- Call of Duty 2
- Call of Duty 4
- Counter-Strike 1.6
- Counter-Strike: Source

Any suggestions in the comments, please!
Since the original link died and the file was lost, Reeload69 has created an alternative file for Notepad++,

So, you want to use a custom HUD in QuakeLive and aren't sure how? This is an easy to follow guide on how to get and install a custom HUD. Finding and using a custom HUD in QuakeLive is simple!
For a while we've been trying to help people with our unofficial Quake Live FAQ page. This page mostly includes general gameplay and customization tips and guides.
A few weeks ago, however, a more technical and official Quake Live FAQ about the game was created by the Quake Live crew.
Some of the questions answered in the official Quake Live FAQ:
What are the QUAKE LIVE System Requirements?
Where can I provide feedback, suggestions and follow QUAKE LIVE's progress?
I am receiving an Error Code alert, what does it mean?
How can I contact QUAKE LIVE technical support?
Another effort to support players with questions is the unofficial #Quakelive.Support channel managed by B^ and supported by several other volunteers.
As a beginner in Quake Live it can be quite frustrating having to play, despite the matchmaking system, the many veteran Quakers roaming the servers.
Whatever you do or try,... these players always seem to have an edge on you.
