#48456 new enhancement

Update CodeMirror to latest version

From what I can see in the JS file, we are using CodeMirror version 5.29.1 which is over 2 years old, according to https://codemirror.net/doc/releases.html

A lot has happened since then, with the current release being 5.49.2.

We should update and set a good example. Getting this in early for 5.4 will allow for testing.

Thanks for this one, @TobiasBg!

Preferably, #41870 would be fixed before/at the same time as updating CodeMirror so that updating in the future is much easier.

Though that is not a steadfast blocker, if you are interested in this, I recommend looking at how to help out there first.
