  • Yes, the "multi-line" comments you're talking about are just plain strings. They are considered as "comments" only because they have no effect on the program, and allow verbatim text; but they still are syntactically strings.

    Coloring differently strings having no effect on the program behavior (hence being "comments") could be acceptable, but this would probably be overly complex (requires the parser to really understand the Python statement) for not so much benefit. If you though wish to work on this, see with the Scintilla project (the editing component we use) to get it patched.
