Inconsistent comment-enclosed text colouration

Steps to reproduce

Make a comment block and format any text content inside.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

The behavior seen in 0.15.9 had all text content enclosed in a comment block, regardless of its formatting, were recolored into var(--code-comment).

I emulated the effect here by appending !important to .cm-comment in app.css, confirming my suspicion that the style of other .cm-* formats were being prioritised.

Actual result

Since 1.0 (or 1.2, I’ve forgotten by now), formatted text content in a comment block had varying colourations. I believe this to be an error, but even as updates came and went, it still persisted.

Additional information

After 1.6.3, it appears that cm-comment is no longer a span class for text content enclosed in code blocks, as seen in the image above. This occurs despite it being enclosed inside a comment block.

<span class="cm-inline-code" spellcheck="false">Untitled</span>

For comparison, the emboldened element has it.

<span class="cm-comment cm-strong">Untitled</span>

This is easily remedied by adding cm-comment as a span class of the element.
