script type
PGN, or Portable Game Notation, is the standard format for recording chess games.  All chess software that I've used can read .pgn files, most can write .pgn files.  I like to edit the files in Vim, but I couldn't find a syntax file for .pgn.  So I wrote this one.  It's quite simple, and the first syntax file I've ever written for Vim, so it may not be complete.  But it does make it easier to read / edit the games.

Put the file in your $VIMRUNTIME/syntax/ directory.
Then in your $VIMRUNTIME/filetype.vim file, add this line:
