It is very difficult to read inline code when it is located inside of a spoiler block:

Readable (standard quote):

ActionScript already contains a Math.pow() function.

Not readable (spoiler quote):

ActionScript already contains a Math.pow() function.

    \$\begingroup\$ Agreed. After clicking in the spoiler, I use to select its text for reading. \$\endgroup\$ – Victor Stafusa Jan 4 '14 at 19:32

  • \$\begingroup\$ FWIW, this bug seems to be specific to the beta theme; it doesn't happen on SO, for example. Also, looks like it's been reported before. \$\endgroup\$ – Ilmari Karonen Jan 27 '14 at 23:03

So after being ignored with more than 70 votes for 2 years on MSO, I flagged this question for moderator attention on Thursday.

On Saturday, it was fixed. Coincidence? Possibly. Either way, this is great!

The problem is in line 1 of all.css. (Admittedly, this information might be more helpful if the file had been created by someone with a functioning return key.)

More specifically, the problem is caused by this rule starting at character 31,193:

.spoiler:hover code{color:#222;background-color:#444;}

If the background colour could be changed to something a bit more sensible like #ddd then everything will be fine.

I feel like using your enter key where it's not strictly necessary flies in the face of the spirit of this site. :) \$\endgroup\$ – undergroundmonorail Mar 27 '14 at 17:04
