Backslashes within user comments may not be getting inserted properly

Reproduce code:

Looking at the first comment, I think backslashes are being stripped out of some text - this could get very confusing for users new to namespaces who read through the extra comments!

Expected result:
Im fairly sure the first comment should look like this

//  namespace MyProject\DB;
require 'db.php';

use MyProject\DB; // fine; same as DB\
use MyProject\DB\Connection as DBC; // fine
use MyProject\DB as HM; // fine
use HM\Connection as DBC2; // class call ends with FATAL!!!

$x = new DBC(); // fine
$y = new HM\Connection(); // fine
$z = new DBC2(); // Fatal error: Class 'HM\Connection' not found

Actual result:
//  namespace MyProject\DB;
require 'db.php';

use MyProjectDB; // fine; same as DB\
use MyProjectDBConnection as DBC; // fine
use MyProjectDB as HM; // fine
use HMConnection as DBC2; // class call ends with FATAL!!!

$x = new DBC(); // fine
$y = new HMConnection(); // fine
$z = new DBC2(); // Fatal error: Class 'HM\Connection' not found

Hah. I never noticed this before as the mirrors I use run on PHP5.3.

This is due to the fact syntax highlighting is generated on the mirror itself, which may as well be running PHP4 which doesn't recognize this syntax...

This was last touched in 2009 and looks to be solved. Can this be closed?

Yes, it seems to be fixed long time ago. Thanks, Jacob!
