What's up with font color changes when using commas, and single quote's?

I've noticed that whenever I compose a sentence like this:

what's with commas, and quotes? <-- the text starts with the green font (nighttime mode), but whenever I get to either a comma or a single quote the text up to that point turns white. This remains until I put a final punctuation mark at the end of the sentence.

At first I thought it was a bug, but maybe its a feature of some sort? It does seem to differential between prose and meta stuff like links. Is that the purpose?

I'm starting to like it (I think), but if I decide I don't like it can I turn it off?

  • This is some syntax highlighting that is carrying over from another identifier, without any context there is no way anyone can tell what is happening.

  • Here's an example of what I'm seeing (see attached)

  • I have no idea what would be causing this – is this the only contents of the file, or did you crop the image?

  • this is the only content.

  • That is truly odd. If you turn on the debug mode in the preferences and then open Develop -> Developer Tools, then select the "inspect element" function (it works just like the Google Chrome developer tools) and click on the green text, what Element does it select? Because that element will have a classname, and that classname will help me pinpoint where the highlighting comes from
