White Code Tags in Development (concluded) Posted September 19, 2015 Job of the code tag has been to show paths, filenames, config files flag, etc. so most important part of it is to be visible to user once user opens windows explorer, opens up notepad++, changes something, etc. and gets back to webpage to look for next step. Having background color that differendiates slightly from background is almost essential if you ask me. It's basically the same as having table where every other line is slightly differend background color, so you can easily focus on what line you are on. Of course other possibility is to bold the text, but that would look silly when text is bolded inside black box. Not trying to sound too harsh, but is it necessary to open up new topic on every astetic thing you have already fixed for yourself with custom CSS? Just have single topic for all the subjective matters about wikis graphical style and people can input their own opinions on the matter. Because seeing several topics dealing with graphical style with opening of "please change this" feels really negative and that you would like wiki to look just like your custom CSS.
