"Several people" is just one that I have seen, and he is wrong.  Whether
the error "is" a missing \ or a missing " (for whatever value of "is"),
the purpose of the fontification is to draw attention to this error.
This error is at the EOL where there is a missing " or \.  In that sense
CC Mode's fontification of it is correct.

I'm faced with an "opponent" who snipped my careful argument without
appearing to have read it, and who is unprepared to counter it on its
merits, yet insists it is wrong.

How can you expect me to be other than adversarial when faced with such
an attitude?
