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

Only noticed this in at the moment, not sure about meta,superuser,or serverfault.

When using Stylish in Firefox or Chrome Stylist in Chrome there is no way to apply a style to your answer to a question to make it different from the rest of the answers. Can it be given a class name 'your-answer' perhaps instead of the inline 'style="background-color: #FFFFFF;" I use a dark theme style and the white background washes out the light text color.

Or does anyone know of a way to apply a CSS style to your accepted answer the way the markup is now?

Now this is a feature request. Nice find, David. – JSONBog Jan 8 '10 at 16:30
I have found other things like this I just can't remember what they are at the moment. – David Jan 8 '10 at 16:53

There's a Greasemonkey script that's related: – micahwittman Jan 8 '10 at 17:43
without some ingenious greasemonkey, there would have to be a mass change – Brian Jan 8 '10 at 20:27
Is there enough energy for a mass change? – Rosinante Jan 8 '10 at 23:27
Why would this result in a 'mass' change. Find the code that set's "style='backgroundcolor: #FFFFFF;" to add the 'your-answer' class along side the 'accepted-answer' class and make the css class and voila, d.o.n.e. I wonder why it was done the way it is in the first place. I hope I'm not being naive. – David Jan 10 '10 at 0:08

I am not seeing any inline background color styles on questions now, so I think we fixed this somewhere along the way.

@pi look man, I just randomly type things and press F5 then "deploy". What do you want from me? – Jeff Atwood Feb 4 '10 at 6:52
What I want from you? Hmmm... Can I choose anything? Will you grant me 3 wishes? Change the number of letters to 2 for @replies so I can see when someone's replying (didn't see that one coming, did you?) – alex Feb 4 '10 at 7:00
Have you considered 3.14159? – Jeff Atwood Feb 4 '10 at 8:08
@Jeff Atwood I considered pie. Mmmm, pie. Actually, I considered that. Might go back to it. Would I be notified if somebody writes @3.14? Doesnt't the . break the @replies? – alex Feb 4 '10 at 8:16
Verified. Seems the new questions are okay, the old ones seem to still have an inline (no big deal). #2344098 has the inline whereas new ones don't for example. – David Aug 9 '10 at 15:02
