    Hi, is it possible to make the text that is wrapped in [code[ wrappers darker and easier to read? It's so light right now:

    Code (Text):
    test
    Look at this text! It's hard to read!
    Oh noes!

    In my browser, the text is black.

    It looks fine for me too (I'm using FireFox). What browser are you using?

    Checking platforms:

    Desktop Windows IE 11: Text is black and normal weight.

    Android Tablet Opera: Text is black and normal weight.

    Apple iPad Safari: Text appears 'gray' - I think it's black, but too light on the 'weight'.

    Of course MW was correct! PF members never lie. ;)

    I'm interested in what you changed, from "what" to "what"?

    I enabled code line numbers which apparently changed the style. I just revert back.

    Haha, it was definitely very light when I looked at it last night! But it's dark and better now. :D

    Most excellent! What browser/ 'puter/operating system are you observing from?

    I'm using windows 7 on Firefox.

    I think, as Greg said, the code line numbers were making everything very light. Yesterday, I saw line numbers, and very light text. Now I see code without line numbers and dark.
