#10592 closed defect (fixed)

Change default style for `inline code` to have gray background

Reported by: anatoly techtonik <techtonik@…> Owned by: Christian Boos
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0
Component: wiki system Version: 0.12.3
Severity: normal Keywords: css
Cc: ryano@… Branch:
Release Notes:

default style for inline code adopted the Trac Hacks color and has now a gray background

API Changes:
Internal Changes:


It is very hard to search for inline code in Trac wiki. It would be extremely handy if default style for inline code snippets was rendered on the same gray background as code blocks by default. Much like stackoverflow and github do.

For an exercise count the amount of inline code blocks in the ticket description. ;)

Big +1 from me.

tt {
 background-color: #F7F7F7;

, but it would be much more nicer if Trac wrapped wiki-formatted content into appropriate style blocks, so that the style could be written as

.wiki .code {
 background-color: #F7F7F7;
 font-family: monospace;

and the generated markup will be something like

<div class="wiki">
Some <span class="code">nice stuff</span> to play with.

Well, XHTML has already a wide range of semantic markup that we could use:

code | samp | kbd | var

… or just keep tt as really it's just appropriate to group all the possible meaning associated to the use of a monospace/teletype font (besides the ones from XHTML: paths, error messages, hostnames, user names, etc.)

I'd propose something like:

tt {
 color: #600;
 border: 1px solid #CBA;
 padding: 0 0.3em;
 background: #F7F7F7;

Here's how this would look like on the common standard backgrounds:

just keep tt (normal wiki, comments)

just keep tt (ticket description)

just keep tt (preview)

I was going to write that I find the inline code spans in StackOverflow very ugly, but your variant with the border actually looks pretty nice. So +1 from my side.
