Ok, I think I have a working solution. I got rid of the separate sh_string state I created and instead mimicked what Andy Eskilsson did in his python state:

Then I have sh_string_end set to a regular expression.

This correctly highlights nested single and double quotes, as well as hash/pound symbols inside quotes. See the attached state file for more details.

(file #18250)

Lines like the following are improperly parsed by enscript 1.6.4:

sed 's/^\s#\sPORT=[1-9][0-9]/PORT=1691/' $SYSEDGE_INIT~ | uniq > $SYSEDGE_INIT

Everything after the hash/pound in the regex gets pretty-printed as though it were a comment. On my system, I copied c_string.st to a new state, which I called sh_string.st:

Then I changed sh.st to call sh_string instead of c_string:

This seems to be an imperfect solution, but it works for the time being.
