Brian Leonard (email@example.com) contributed a minor mode that does font-locking (syntax coloring) of VTL in XEmacs and GNU Emacs. As a minor mode, it insinuates itself into whatever major mode you're using, so you don't lose the major mode's goodness. Read more about it in EmacsVtlMode.
Tom Armitage (firstname.lastname@example.org) has produced a bundle for Textmate that provides syntax highlighting and some snippets. It's in its early stage, so contributions are welcome. You can find it hosted at its Google Code site for now.
