Can we re-use the code editor window?

Simple q: is it possible to re-use the MS code-editor window in an app? As
part of a code-review / promotion tool (not commercial) it would be handy to
see the text with the standard colour coding. In particular for C#, but also
SQL, VB, XML, etc (the usual suspects). Alternatively, does anybody know of
any suitable (cheap / free) alternatives that can be embedded and coded with
C# and .Net 2? It doesn't have to allow editing - just view.

Cheers,

Marc

Actipro software: syntaxeditor control. Can handle 2 or more languages
at the same time, which is IMHO essential for proper code view /
editing.

A useful resource, but vastly overkill for what I need; all I really need is
view capability, with keyword / comment highlighting. Anybody have anything
like that knocking around? Otherwise I'll probably go for my nearest google:

Far from perfect, but possibly close enough...
