[code] Oddity in Rexx syntax colouration

Identifiers that have more than one consecutive numerical digit in them
will colour extra digits as numbers even in the middle of an identifier
that continues past the digits in question. This is easier to illustrate
than to explain:

‚ÄčI've checked with Ctrl+I and yes, it is indeed splitting "a12b34c" into
identifier (a1), number (2), identifier (b3), number (4), identifier (c).
I peeked into the Rexx lexer and couldn't find what the problem was.
AFAICT "identifier" is correctly defined and it is properly placed ahead of
number in the check order. It's a bit of a mystery to me what's going on.

"Perhaps people don't believe this, but throughout all of the discussions
of entering China our focus has really been what's best for the Chinese
people. It's not been about our revenue or profit or whatnot."
--Sergey Brin, demonstrating the emptiness of the "don't be evil" mantra.
