# Inline code inside a spoiler block is difficult to read

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

ActionScript already contains a Math.pow() function.

• Should I include a proposed CSS fix for this as well? Jan 4 '14 at 18:36
• Agreed. After clicking in the spoiler, I use to select its text for reading. Jan 4 '14 at 19:32

• 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. Jan 27 '14 at 23:03
• @IQAndreas It is very difficult. Jan 28 '14 at 13:48
• @Daniel Thanks, fixed. Mar 7 '14 at 18:33

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.
