Why is my name green? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I posted a reply in the Off-Topic forum that included a VS 2008 Upgrade Wizard comment, which I copied and pasted from my code. The comment was in green, as is standard in the IDE environments; but when I entered my name at the bottom of the post, it was also displayed in comment-green.

  • The insert code block feature currently has problems with colorization. On problem is that comments in the code (at least PowerShell code) are shown in green (as they should be), but everything following can also be green. It's as if the tag for green is never terminated. It sounds like the colorization in you code was not terminated, so your signature looks like it is part of the comment.

    I believe they are working on a fix for the code colorization problems. In the meantime, the only workaround would involve using the "Insert HTML" feature to fix the HTML tags, which is not pretty. Or, perhaps your signature is actually part of the code block, and you can find a way to make sure it is not.
