The built-in syntax highlighting XML files are packed into a Qt
resource (qrc). This improves performance when loading them. I don't
remember if it's installed as a separate qrc file or if it's embedded
into the library, though.
Why do you need them? You can get them from the SyntaxHighlighting
framework source code, and you can install modified versions in the
user path René mentioned.
