I am using
vim to edit Java code. I added a Javadoc header above the class definition, but the syntax highlighting is very strange:
read the Javadoc comment above
Why is the first sentence highlighted white while the rest is highlighted gray?
The reason for the special highlighting of the first sentence is to emphasize that it is the summary of the Javadoc comment. The first sentence of a Javadoc comment is handled specially by the Javadoc tool, see this description of how Javadoc comments are interpreted.
