Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Json.Net - Serialize property name without quotes is tagged , but it doesn't show any syntax highlighting to me, and the answer isn't showing it either. It seems to be the case for any question I view, such as Trouble with Thread#sleep in OSX and Ruby 1.9.2, which is tagged .

This worked fine for me until recently.

I tried Ctrl+F5, but it didn't change anything.

It might be related to my upgrade to Firefox 7 (the OS is Win 7 64-bit).

I don't know when and where syntax highlighting shows up, but not highlighting for me in Safari 5 too. – Dave Sep 29 '11 at 10:15
The code I see is not highlighted too, and I am using Google Chrome on Mac OS X 10.7. Maybe it's because there are two tags that are associated with different syntax highlightings. – kiamlaluno Sep 29 '11 at 10:17
I've been using FF7 for a while, and syntax highlighting was working fine. However, I can now repro this -- No syntax is highlighting. – agf Sep 29 '11 at 10:17
@kiamlaluno It's every question, not just that one. – agf Sep 29 '11 at 10:18
@agf I thought that svick was referring only to questions tagged c#, not to every question. – kiamlaluno Sep 29 '11 at 10:28
@kiamlaluno It now seems to be fixed, but I was able to repro it on Python questions as well. I see the highlighting everywhere now. – agf Sep 29 '11 at 10:33

Don't ask... this was too weird.

But... fixed.

A very genuinely-felt "thank you" for reporting this.

I'm sorry, but by saying "don't ask" you've made me even more curious. – ChrisF Sep 29 '11 at 10:49
So...a bunch of ninjas stole your pet ponies and left riddled clues in the source? – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 29 '11 at 11:02
@Padded something like that, except some other ninjas then came and stole the clues – Marc Gravell Sep 29 '11 at 11:42
So it was a "So that's what that code was for!" moment? If yes, I can feel with you...I know those too damn well... – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 29 '11 at 11:43
@Padded it wasn't even a code change! – Marc Gravell Sep 29 '11 at 11:46
Okay, now I'm really curios what happened! – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 29 '11 at 11:55
@Padded and if I ever find out, I'll let you know ;p – Marc Gravell Sep 29 '11 at 11:57
At first I thought the Japanese Stack Exchange was to blame, as there the Ruby tag would probably mean text on top of other text, but no sign of that tag yet! – Andrew Grimm Oct 4 '11 at 22:34
