SUCCESS! Thanks to Colomban, Lex, Matthew and all for the corrections. 

I'll clean up the Euphoria support files and post it to the Geany Wiki.

Thanks again.

When you use a Custom Filetype (the filetype.Euphoria.conf thing), you
need to set the lexer_filetype (and tag_parser too if you want) under
the "settings" section.  This tells Geany which lexer (the thing that
styles the code) to use.  In your case, set lexer_filetype=Lua and
tag_parser=Lua and you should be done.
