I'm modifying the sample Lexer highlighter ActiproSoftware.CSharp.xml file to change some highlighting behaviour.

For example I would like a multiline comment section background color to be WhiteSmoke, which works fine just on the text or white space. However I would like the background color to be for the entire region just not when the line terminates. Just like what happens in the HTML example for Script section. I hope I'm making myself understood.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated,

Background regions like that can only be defined either via a span indicator or by using a child language. Since your comments will be defined by the lexical parser, you would have to use a child language that only consists of a comment to do this.
