What language is that? Styles are language dependent, or at least they
were until named styles support was added. It kind of looks like a
'here doc' from Perl/shell to my naive eyes. If it's perl, maybe try
here_q/qq/qx style or something, although I'm not sure what that
translates too in the set_geany_colors tool.

You'll have to poke around in the filetypes.* files I guess if you're
not using the named styles support.

Did you try geany-themes? It's at least as easy as set_geany_colors,
supports every language Geany supports, has many more pre-made themes,
including all existing themes listed on the Geany Extras page (and even
1 or 2 from set_geany_colors), and is being actively maintained.
If I'm not mistaken, set_geany_colors basically did what named
styles/Colorschemes do now. I think set_geany_colors filled a need that
existed previously, judging by the first sentence of the overview "Geany
itself currently has no concept of a 'colorscheme', per se.". It does
now, might as well use it.
