I know what  you mean. Same thing in BBEdit. Really, that's what they 
are, but it'd be nice if there were some way of distinguishing the 
parts of the strings. One of the issues is that (at least for BBEdit) 
the SQL syntax coloring is based on ANSI SQL, not PostgreSQL. I'd like 
to hack my own language module for this, but haven't got around to 
doing it.

Visiting the CRiSP site, I see they have a Mac version for demo. I'll 
give it a whirl, and see what their colors are like.
