What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I noticed a bug/feature with the syntax highlighting where two-character capitalized identifiers are not being highlighted inside code blocks. This does not appear to be a problem in the case of two-letter identifiers where only one of the letters is capitalized. I.e. System.IO fails to highlight "IO", but System.Io would be fully highlighted. Example is C#:

Two letter identifiers are black instead of green

I apologize if this has been inquired upon before, I didn't see it in my brief search.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Does Encoding.UTF8 something special that it's not been marked red? ;) – BalusC Apr 19 '10 at 22:55
Nope I just didn't event notice it in there. I suppose it would be more accurate then to say that it fails to highlight non-camel-cased statements. – Nathan Taylor Apr 20 '10 at 0:31
All-uppercased identifiers are usually amenend as constants. My IDE also highlights constants differently. – BalusC Apr 21 '10 at 17:41

Markdown does only formatting. Syntax highlighting is actually done by Prettify. You can report issues over there.

Should I migrate my question there then? Admins? – Nathan Taylor Apr 20 '10 at 2:39
No, it's a 3rd party library. Just report it independently. – BalusC Apr 20 '10 at 2:54

Markdown isn't perfect at syntax highlighting -- usually this is because it fails to guess the language, and various languages use the same syntax to mean different things (which should be highlighted differently).

Suggestions for improving this have been made in the past.
