No, it's an unintended side effect. The (automated) syntax highlighting was
added to the FAQ much, much later than that entry was written. The syntax
highlighting tool does not recognize the first example as Python, so it does not
apply Python syntax highlighting to it.

that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had
an underlying truth."
