I can't figure out why one line of the code sample in this answer shows as normal text, does anybody have a clue?

I suspect you had some   or so in the leading whitespace on that line. I deleted it and readded spaces, now it's fine. – Daniel Fischer Jul 8 '13 at 19:42
@DanielFischer, I used copy/paste to copy the line from the previous version of the answer; perhaps I copied from the preview instead of the text box? It's never happened to me before in all these years though. P.S. I saw your fix, worked great. Did you just replace the spaces? – Mark Ransom Jul 8 '13 at 19:45
There's always a first time. Copy-pasting from somewhere is one of the more common ways to introduce breaking whitespace, could be that indeed. Yes, only spaces, nothing else. – Daniel Fischer Jul 8 '13 at 19:46
