Not really a bug; a user inappropriately syntax highlighted an enormous block of non-code.

(also worked fine in Chrome, which has an outstanding JavaScript engine -- join the power!)

I just un-indented it and used <pre></pre> instead.

update: we don't do syntax highlighting on Super User any more, so this issue is moot.

  • Thanks Jeff . I just want to know if the user inappropriately syntax highlighted also we need to exception handling and provide proper handling . then only it will be good , other wise if we didn't handle those error browser will handle that . that is issue ( thats my thought )
