Valentin wrote an extensive review of Frescobaldi some months ago: 

I think it's the LilyPond editor which has the better "look and feel",
Unfortunately, it depends on some KDE packages...
But it's usually my favorite editor (except for my netbook, where I want
to run lightweight programs).

Yes, I'm already doing this.
I'd like to see if I can get closer to the Frescobaldi highlighting.

I wonder how many levels are available in [keywords]. I mean, I can see
'primary' and 'secondary'. Can I add some more if I want to?
How many groups of keywords may I need for the LilyPond synthax?
And how can I style each level? (for example, I've tried to place a
keyword in 'secondary' but it gets no style)

These are just questions for myself...what I'd like to investigate.
Anyway if you have advices please let me know.

If I use the keyboard shortcut in a .ly file, Geany correctly uses %.
So I guess there's some problem with the style...
