The syntax highlighting of hex files is bad, as shown in What PIC processor was this HEX-file meant for?:

enter image description here

Can something be done about that?

Depending on the tags you use, different code syntax highlighting will be used. You selected the tag, which has a code syntax style default. It's not exactly assembly because there isn't a code format for that available.

I wouldn't expect a "proper" syntax highlighting for your code as that is more of a file format (Intel Hex) rather than a code language (C, ASM, Python, etc...). The syntax highlighting is done using Google Prettify (see editing help for more info).

    \$\begingroup\$ It would be nice to have a syntax highlighting for Intel Hex files, since the format itself is so hard to read. At least get the addresses and checksums in different colors. I see prettyify takes plugins... \$\endgroup\$ – markrages Mar 24 '13 at 19:51
  • \$\begingroup\$ Here is a list with interface options for specifying a language using prettify. lang-none is appropriate in this case. \$\endgroup\$ – user17592 Mar 26 '13 at 17:59
