In this post, the op has used colour to highlight aspects of his question to very good effect.

How is that achieved? I can't seem to find a reference as to how it is done and the menu bar at the head of the text body doesn't provide any clues...

    That particular instance might look good, but just as often spurious syntax highlighting could make output hard to read

    I doubt it helps, but as it doesn’t do any harm in this case I refrained from editing it out (by adding <!-- language-all: none --> to the post’s top).

I doubt this is intentional – it‘s syntax highlighting, which in this case was added automatically when the question was tagged , see its Tag Info page:

Code Language (used for syntax highlighting): lang-py

The syntax highlighting help page explains how one can add this highlighting to one or all code blocks.
