This is a suggestion for minor -- but hopefully easy to implement -- enhancement to improve user-friendliness of the OO database SQL editor.

The editor colour-codes syntax, but it codes double-quoted strings and single-quoted strings the same colour.  In SQL, the two types of quotes have very different meanings -- double quotes are used for names of tables or columns, single quotes are used for literals.  It's easy to mistakenly use the wrong type, and having them show up as different colours would make it easier to catch those mistakes.

Just arbitrarily including the American spelling so it will show up in searches: color, color-coding

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
