This is unlikely to be a kde file associations problem.

I've not worked with bluefish, but normally, editors that have syntax 
highlighting have either some method of setting the highlight-type 
manually and/or of configuring which highlight type applies to which files 
by extension and/or mimetype.  That's what you're looking for.  (I could 
explain how to set it in kwrite or in mcedit, but that's not bluefish...)
