Thanks :-). Indeed, MacVim (http://code.google.com/p/macvim/) is nice  
and efficient to color .dtx files.

I guess that writing .dtx files is not a concern for most of TeX  
users, so I did not expect this syntax coloring functionality to exist  
for most editors... But I am willing to be surprised :-)
