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

When inline code appears directly below a link, it overlaps and hides the underline of the link (on Meta, the only visual indicator that a link is present. Example on this question:

I see this on IE 9.

Not sure if this happens on sites other than Meta.

It happens in many other cases and ways too. – animuson Jan 23 '13 at 21:28
@animuson once I noticed it, I have realized that it happens freaking everywhere. – mikeTheLiar Jan 23 '13 at 21:30
Not for me on Chrome.… – SeinopSys Jan 23 '13 at 21:31
@DJDavid98 now that you mention it, this specific instance doesn't overlap for me, either. Is this part of the new slimmer UX? – mikeTheLiar Jan 23 '13 at 21:38
These issues are dependent upon your browser and/or font settings. Different browsers, fonts, etc will cause different line heights and other small differences that aren't very noticeable on the large scale but are for tiny things such as this. – animuson Jan 23 '13 at 23:40
@animuson I'd like an 'official' verdict on this. If it is indeed browser/setting dependent, I'd like to how to stop this from happening, because it's annoying as hell. – mikeTheLiar Jan 24 '13 at 0:35
