I wanted to build a minimal syntax highlighting for fasta files. Such files are 
used commonly in biology/bioinformatics and may look like this:

>Description of first element

>Description of second element

I wanted to highlight the description lines and thought that marking it as 
"comment" should work. However, it looks like it is not possible to use `>` as 
character for a comment.




The `filetype_extensions.conf` was adjusted accordingly and the *.fasta files 
are recognized as Fasta files according to the menu `Document` -> `Set filetype`

This does not work as intended. Lines starting with `#` or `;` are highlighted 
as comments, but lines starting with `>` are not.

Did I do anything wrong? Could you please help me with this (seemingly simple)
