I don't know (and I don't care actually), but I think attachments should
be recognized by any client.

Not in `gnus-article-mode'.

I mean those are the default keybindings for making attachments in
message-mode.  But they are available only if you use additional
functionality provided by Gnus, i.e. with:

  (setq mail-user-agent 'gnus-user-agent)

(Assuming that you use `compose-mail' command for making a new message).
Or you can just try "M-x gnus-msg-mail" instead.

Those commands are: `mml-attach-file' and `mml-attach-file'.

This elisp block is properly highlighted for me.  If org blocks are not
highlighted for you, try:

(setq org-src-fontify-natively t)
