Actually, the reason why I didn't use io.close_buffer is that the function has confirmation, and before every closing I have to go to that buffer, which is an effect that I don't want to see.

Thanks. I'll add these.

I'll try to reproduce this and look into a fix.

Other than the use of `buffer:delete()`, which should be replaced with `io.close_buffer()` per the documentation, feel free to add to the wiki :)

Thanks. I'll add the extra keywords.

If Textadept ever got a dedicated 'less' lexer, then this would not work according to the example you gave. Since <script> tags can have different options, I feel like <style> should too. If there's been a recent addition to the HTML standard that allows for more <style> options that is not handled by Textadept's lexer, please let me know and I'll fix it.
