SyntaxHighlightingPlugin uses the enscript command to do its job. And the plugin executes enscript to get the list of supported programming language. But the way the plugin extracts the list of supported language is too strict and may overlook some languages.

The plugin executes "enscript --help-highlighting" to get the list of supported languages. And it picks up all occurrences of "Name: ...". There can be a case where spaces are inserted between "Name" and ":", in which case the plugin failed to recognize such a line.

Now the plugin is modified to tolerate such cases.
