Code Block font/row-height too small to display underscore character. RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my browser (IE7), when I add a code block (C#) that has underscores in it, the underscores are not visible when posted.  For example, the text "this_has_underscore" does not show the underscore in the following:
    this_has_underscore

  • Thanks for the report Peter,

    Looks like a bug. I'll log it and see when we can get to this. The good news is that when you copy paste it back into an editory, it seems to retain the underscore, so it looks like this is probably some style issue, hopefully easy to address. 

    Thanks for reporting this!

  • Hi Brent.  Any word on a fix for this?  Nothing in the latest updates addressed this.
    test_underscore.

  • Peter, Brent, this is not new. Over a month ago it was noted that single line entries in a code block exhibited this characteristic. I've been addressing it by the expedient of adding an extra line in the code block. Just one more of the multitudinous ways in which these crappy forums are broken...

    cheers,
