syntax coloring in (php) scripts inside strings that continue with ." is not continuing

Απόστολος Καρακούσης hace 8 años actualizado por Ryan Harne hace 8 años 1
In php:
echo " SELECT lala"
." FROM lala2";
the first will be syntax colored, the second will not

Tried to change the color scheme but still the same.
