In addition to the lack of syntax highlighting >:(, it... looks like inline code! How about a unified rectangle instead? Put the border on the <pre>, not <code>.

enter preformatted text here

^ Why not "enter code here"?

Also, while writing this meta post "draft saved" would pop up in the top left corner and it seems to be lacking position: absolute or something since it pushed my codeblock right until it vanished about 5s later.


For those from the future

(ew, no left-padding for the header)

  • @Jin Could we get some margin on the bottom of the pre as well please. They have no white space before any following paragraph. Sep 11, 2014 at 2:26
  • @DanielBallinger yes. salesforce.se is launched on a new CSS/LESS structure I've been working on. So there are still little quirks I'm finding out. We'll be doing another production build later tonight to get the changes out.

I have pushed a fix for this. It will be on live after our next production build.

    Looks like the width and margin has been fixed, but the whitespace in between the lines of code is still there. Is that going to be fixed as well? Sep 11, 2014 at 12:01
  • All looks good to me on Chrome. Sep 11, 2014 at 14:36
  • Can .wmd-preview get some padding? 3px?
