Here's what I've got (keep in mind that I use the Dark Theme):
background-color: cyan; color: #333;
pre > tt
border: solid #888 1px;
input[type=submit], input[type=text], input[type=checkbox], input[type
border: solid #333 1px;
This way, my CSS won't make just any <pre>
look like code, only <pre><tt>
. I don't want to see every use of preformatted whitespace as code. Since I am selecting <tt>
(an inline element) inside of <pre>
, the styles apply to the <tt>
; hence, the "display: block;
This code still suffers from the problem of mis-styling a <tt> used inside <pre> in cases like: <pre>blah blah blah, <tt>Typewriter</tt> <strong>power</strong></pre> (I know, It's contrived). However, this is because CSS can't select (or disallow) so-called "anonymous" elements (i.e. text chunks).
Or, you can just do it your way, which is fine.
Update: since I was having problems with the Everything Engine messing with my square and pointy brackets, I moved my CSS into an external file. I have updated the code block to reflect my latest CSS.
