Why I always use [quote] instead of [code]

The [ code ] BBcode styling sucks; sorry, there's just no other way to put it. Tiny text? I think the majority of us here aren't interested in constantly using the browser's zoom function to read font-size 10!

echo 'hello world';

echo 'hello world';

It's also much easier to tell what is intended to be code versus just some tiny text which I usually associate with moderator comments.

Change the code BBcode styling to quote and figure something new for styling quotes please.

*EDIT* In previews the code is set to 10px but after publishing a post it increases to 13px which is still too small. A larger font (e.g. 17px), a border, and a slightly shaded background-color would help though.

This message looks like it's been moderated, doesn't it?

It should be possible to allow user selection (and setting) of font and font size.

But the easy solution to a need for 17px is an eye test - I took one when I reached 14px and realised it was my problem, not the web sites'

I'm not sure what you mean. In my browser, the text within code tags appears the same size as the other text (13px in my browser).

When previewing, text in [ code] tags is tiny, but it's ok when posted - that's a really old bug! There are plenty of other bugs too.

I'm using Firefox.

However, more generally, it's about time that Webmaster World upgraded to a WYSIWYG editor. Other sites manage this ok.
