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

Since kbd is disabled here, the pathological sample that triggered this is hosted on meta.gaming for your inspector/firebug/etc. pleasure.

Here's a screenshot.

looks fine to me, can you post a screenshot? – Kyle Cronin Jul 28 '10 at 16:47
@Kyle: Here you go, notice how the <kbd>'s overlap and the general impression is that lines are cramped up together. I could edit it in but I'd lose Jeff's tag. – badp Jul 28 '10 at 16:55
I don't know, it looks OK to me. I certainly wouldn't describe it as 'pathological'. PS - you should be able to edit it in without losing the tag. – Kyle Cronin Jul 28 '10 at 17:28
How is this bydesign?! The screenshot badp posted is what I'm getting in Google Chrome in Linux, and looks obviously broken. – TheLQ Jul 29 '10 at 7:06

The list looks decent with these changes (copy/pasting from the way I got it to look halfway decent with the Chrome Inspector):

kbd {
  background: #eee;
  border-color: #ccc;   /* was #ccc #aaa #888 #bbb */
  border-style: outset; /* was solid */
  border-width: 1px;    /* was 1px 3px 3px 1px */
  color: black;
  padding: 0px 2px;     /* was 2px 4px */
  white-space: nowrap;

ol li, ul li {
  line-height: 20px;    /* was 16 px */

Obviously this is quite likely to break, well, everything else.

This issue can easily be fixed by just adding display: inline-block to the kdb pseudo-tag. MetaSO has this implemented on their "all.css" file for the aforementioned pseudo-tag, but GamingSE/Arqade does not. – Krazer Oct 9 '12 at 15:55

This actually looks fine here, at the moment:

You need to define a burrow for the safe zone, and a civilian alert that restricts movement to it.

  • To create the burrow
    • Press w to go to the burrows screen
    • Press a to add a new burrow
    • Size the burrow (remember, a burrow is 3d)
    • Choose a name, color, etc
  • To create a new alert
    • Press m to go to the military screen
    • Press a to go to the alerts screen
    • Press c to create a new alert
    • Name it with N
    • Change the burrow restriction by pressing enter on the burrow while the burrow is highlighted.
  • To activate the alert (as the civilian alert)
    • Press enter while the alert is highlighted.

Unfortunately, it still looks lousy on meta.gaming.SE :-(.

The boxes do not overlap. Not here, right now, at least. And whether or not the characters should be aligned is probably debateable. – MPi Aug 2 '12 at 10:19
