Well, it appears they've been revamped (after some here mentioned they were a bit too subtle.) What do you guys think of them now? Too pronounced? Perhas the blue bar should be washed out a bit more...Either way, it's definitely an improvement over the almost-non-detectable-background from before.

At first I thought there was something wrong with my computer, but now I actually like them because they actually bring out the quotes a lot better. I don't think it's the -best- idea, but it's a lot better than trying to guess where the quotes are.


I like them.

I would like to see more difference between code and quotes (beyond code getting a fixed width font), though.


I'd rather see them suspended in some sort of dark gray box, that is just too distracting for me right now.


I would also like to see something similar here on Meta.


I agree with TheTXI, I actually like the hard highlight, as on some LCDs the greyish is too subtle to be distinguished.

Maybe keep them for the quotes but remove them from code. It is way too distracting to be of any use.
