to avoid comments like the sixth one on this post
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Really, Vlad should have just edited his answer to correspond to the edit you made to your question. I've done so now...
I'm not really keen on the idea of encouraging codes within comments, short inline ones are fine with me though.
And you wouldn't want a pop-up/tooltip that is longer/taller than your browser view port.
