This really annoyed me and I fixed it, so I thought I'd share.
I use gvim under Ubuntu to do all my coding. gvim associates *.ss with some other file type, so the syntax highlighting wasn't correct and it wasn't auto-indenting at all.
I edited /usr/share/vim/vim71/filetypes.vim - do a text search for "Scheme" and you should see this:
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.scm,*.ss setf scheme
For me it was on line 1670.
Comment it out with a double-quotation (") and load a .ss file - it'll now use the xhtml file type for syntax and indentation instead.
There's probably a better way to do this... but I've got work to do!
I hope this helps someone

I think I found a better way to do this.
In ~/.vim/filetype.vim (you might need to create it) put:
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.ss setf xhtml
and now when you open Silverstripe template files it'll give you html syntax highlighting.

Nice! It works and it is better way of doing this. Did you figure out how to format suntax automatically (=) for ss files so at least it puts the <% %> tags as nested?
