# Re: [NTG-context] issue in Lua syntax formatting

the formatting of Lua multi-line strings messes up the source structure, in the following MWE, the "one" is displayed after "[[":
```
\starttext```
```
\startLUA
words = [[
one
two
three
]]
\stopLUA

\stoptext
```
```
```
I can reproduce this. As a workaround, you can insert a non-breaking space (U+00A0) immediately after the "[[":
```
\starttext

\startLUA
words = [[
one
two
three
]]
\stopLUA

\stoptext

(You can't see the NBSP, but it's there)

You can also use the Scite syntax highlighting:

\usemodule[scite]

\starttext

\startLUA
words = [[
one
two
three
]]
\stopLUA

\stoptext

```
It produces different (but usually better) output than the default highlighter. This module is installed by default with ConTeXt LMTX.
```
There's also the Vim module:

\usemodule[vim]
\definevimtyping[LUA][syntax=lua]

\starttext

\startLUA
words = [[
one
two
three
]]
\stopLUA

\stoptext

You would need to install this module manually though.
