Improve IDE syntax coloring

The IDE improves with every release, which is great. However, one odd thing I noticed is that the syntax coloring seems to be case sensitive.
For example, if one types
Map<Id,String> ... no coloring happens, where as if you use lowercase for map as in "map<Id,String>", map gets colored nicely. This doesn't really improve readability and somehow defeats the purpose of syntax coloring. Same is true for DML statements like select vs SELECT.
Please make the coloring case insensitive and maybe add data types to the coloring too when you're at it.
That would improve the IDE a lot.

I wasn't sure if this should go to Ideas or not, so I posted it here.
Thanks for your feedback!  We're always looking for ways to improve the IDE experience.

Please also post your suggestion on the IdeaExchange so others can find it and vote.
Ok, I posted it on IdeaExchange.
Fellow Developers, please vote here
Is there somewhere where you can specify how your Eclipse environment handles syntax coloring?  None of the syntax coloring on my edit page shows...I tried going to the Eclipse editor syntax coloring, but that seems to have no effect.
