The syntax of the command shown by Norbert is neither mysterious nor 
invalid. However, the symbol for a rule "->" has been broken in two 
parts, a dash "-" and a greater sign ">", and the unfortunately the 
greater sing ">" has been put at the beginning of a new line. This is 
very unfortunate indeed, because nearly all newsreaders will interpret a 
line starting by a ">" as a quotation. Depending on your newsreader, 
such a line can be displayed with a colorful vertical bar.

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], WindowStatusArea -> 
ToString[StyleDefinitions /. Options[EvaluationNotebook[], 
StyleDefinitions]]]

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], Rule[WindowStatusArea, 
ToString[StyleDefinitions /. Options[EvaluationNotebook[], 
StyleDefinitions]]]]
