script type
I just try my best to enhance this script as follows:
1) better syntax highlight.
2) indent support (just use the css indent file is enough actually. >.<).
3) auto compile file.less to file.css, and echo any errors if you have lessc installed.

The script is now available on github. https://github.com/KohPoll/vim-less.git

I just begin to use less(http://lesscss.org). It can help us to write css more productivity.
But I just can not find a less syntax file for vim, so I wrote a simple one.
I am just new to vim, and this is the very first script for vim I've written.
Just take your decision.
install details
If you have pathogen(http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2332) install, just cd to your vim configuration folder(~/.vim/bundle/, or PATH-OF-VIM/vimfiles/bundle/),and execute git clone https://github.com/KohPoll/vim-less.git
If you do not, then download it, unzip it, and copy all this stuffs into the correspond folders.of your vim configuration folder(that means ~/.vim/, on windows, it may be PATH-OF-VIM/vimfiles/).
