If this were correctly highlighted for an XML syntax like I selected, shouldn't the commented out tags display with the comment color regardless of their content?  This can get to be a (admittedly minor) pain when posting larger xml blocks.

          <!-- Whether the window is initially visible. Optional. Default false. -->
          <!-- <visible></visible> -->

          <!-- Whether the user can minimize the window. Optional. Default true. -->
          <!-- <minimizable></minimizable> -->

          <!-- Whether the user can maximize the window. Optional. Default true. -->
          <!-- <maximizable></maximizable> -->

Why, yes.  Yes I do believe they should be colored differently, like this:

<!-- Whether the window is initially visible. Optional. Default false. -->
<!-- <visible></visible> -->

<!-- Whether the user can minimize the window. Optional. Default true. -->
<!-- <minimizable></minimizable> -->

<!-- Whether the user can maximize the window. Optional. Default true. -->
<!-- <maximizable></maximizable> -->
