Even without the indent. Indentation of continuation lines (in comments or
commands) is required only in production mode, I believe. For ordinary
syntax files under Windows, I understand that asterisked comments go on and
on, with an asterisk only in the first line, until a period is encountered.

Indenting the continuation lines should work -- but make sure that only
the last line ends with a period. A period as the last non-blank
character in a line is interpreted as the command terminator.
This should work:
*This is a comment with two sentences. The second
sentence continues on the second line.
This will generate an error:
*This is a comment with two sentences.
The second sentence continues on the second line.

Sorry about the simple question, but I can't find an answer in any of my
If I want to extend a comment in a syntax window to multiple lines must
I each new line with an asterisk?
I've tried beginning the first line with an asterisk and indenting the
subsequent lines, but I get error messages.
