    In what way? Just posted some code and it looked just like the old school code.

    Khronos_webmaster: While we're at it, do you intend to add some syntax highlighting goodness?

    Yeah, I'm an idiot. I should have used the dark theme.

    Confirmed. With the dark theme, code is not readable.

    Edit: I just saw in http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boa...00#post1237400 that some code actually is rendered in a way you can read it well, while some posts earlier the problem with "white-on-white" code also applies. Weird.

    Edit 2: User profiles seem to have the same problem as code sections.

    I think that post simply does not use code markup.

    Could we get the code markup fixed for dark theme, please?

    I think it does. Why else would it be formatted inside a box overwritten with Code: ?

    Oh I see now. I was looking at the post your link took me, the one by PiouPiou, while you probably meant the post by Dan Barlett.

    The latter one uses COLOR=#333333 markup inside the code markup, which explains why it is readable. I guess that color markup was manually added?

    I am sorry to bring this up again, but the dark theme is still broken in regard so code tags...

    What's still broken for you? The code tags seem to work fine now. So do comments and normal text.
