Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Right now to emphasize text we have three options.

Sometimes a little bit of controlled background-color might help to break large answers out into sections. For example, in this answer I'm talking about two distinct things, and I've interleaved the discussion. I think a bit of color highlighting would help to make the answer more clear:

It wouldn't be an all out color wheel. But I actually had in mind one highlight color (based on site theme) that could be used. So on meta, it would be some light colored variation of (108,0,0) (crimson)
