Actionscript editor or syntax highlighting?

I'm a regular Quanta user -- love it for PHP, CSS and XML coding. I also do a lot of ActionScript coding and would like to find an editor that runs under Linux. (The Flash IDE gets unwieldy after the code exceeds 100+ lines...) Now, while I can certainly write AS in Quanta, Kate, Kwrite, KDevelop, Screem or any of the other widely known editors, none of these do AS syntax highlighting -- which I find helpful for avoiding typos.

Do any of you use an editor for ActionScript, under Linux, which does highlighting?

I'd be interested in one too, if it existed.
If you really need one, I can give you the source for a syntax highlighter I made and you could implement the highlighting yourself.

AS Editor for Linux

So far the only IDE for ActionScript that I have had any success with is Eclipse with ASDT plugin. Works great.
