Have you tried emacs or xemacs? They both have syntax highlighting for 
C and assembler code, but it is quite well hidden deep within the help
files and obscure configuration options. In emacs, it is called "font
lock mode", and can be enabled by pressing Alt-X (och Meta-X) and then
write "font-lock-mode" (without quotes) and press return. I'm pretty
sure there is a way to enable this by using the configuration GUI, but
I'm not sure how it is done. 

If all else fails, the ~/.emacs configuration file can be used to set
this as the default.
