Syntax highlighting XML files used to come with katepart, but that's

Where are they?

I think they are part of the KTextEditor Framework now, Kate and friends
depend on.

Hm, it doesn't install any xml files.

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[1], and you can install modified versions in the
user path René mentioned.

Ah, OK. No wonder I was unable to find them. Thanks for the link.

The reason I need them is because I need to modify tads3.xml and update it due to changes in the language it defines the syntax for.
