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

This question already has an answer here:

That's an issue with google-code-prettify, which Stack Overflow uses, and is not something the Stack Overflow team are likely to remedy.

That said, google-code-prettify is open-source - so feel free to go fix it!
