I write code or commands using "backticks". But on SuperUser, the background doesn't have much visual contrast, so if I write multiple commands separated with comma or a single word, it's hard to distinguish between the commands and the words between. If the "code/command" background color was more visible this had been more readable.

e.g. when listing commands like: command 1, command 2 and command 3.

For an example, see How can I print an environment variable from the command prompt in Windows 7?

  • I agree. The contrast is very low. I have worked around this by using the Stylish extension for Firefox.

    Yes, the visual contrast is a bit low. It works way better on Stack Overflow.

    More! Some of us are too cheap for good IPS panels.
