Gvim has an excellent syntax highlighting for XPM images, but sometimes it's useful to view the actual data. This can be achieved by searching for everything, type in "/." and all characters will be highlighted and therefore the old colouring is lost. To regain the normal highlighting you can search for a non-existent sequence, like "/foo".


This requires search highlighting to be turned on, see VimTip14 (or just type :set hlsearch). It should also work with 5.7

Instead of searching for something nonexistant like /foo, just type :noh (for no highlighting)
