Implement this interface when you wish to support syntax colorization.
should be implemented on a separate object in your language service. For more information, see Syntax Coloring.Notes to Callers
This interface is obtained by calling the GetColorizer method in the IVsLanguageInfo interface. An editor obtains the object from the language service to provide support for syntax highlighting. The language service itself may use its own colorizer to aid in support of more complex features such as the IntelliSense member completion lists and brace matching.
