I just observed a small glitch in the C#-syntax-highlighter in this answer:

enter image description here

The Word Remove should be completely black. Reproduced with IE9 and SRWare Iron.

EDIT: I retagged that to support, because this is no bug actually (See answers from animuson and Oded).

  • Whoops, moved on the close too quick, sorry. – Lance Roberts Jan 29 '13 at 20:09

There were some weird characters in between the "Re" and "move" parts of the text. It was actually:


I've fixed it with a simple edit.

  • argh - Note to myself: First look at the code, then post a bug-report. Should I leave the post open for futher reference? – Spontifixus Jan 29 '13 at 20:13
  • @Spontifixus - Even when you look at the code you wouldn't see it (unless you mean view the html source). It is a zero width space, so you don't see it. I found it by using the right arrow and finding an extra character where there wasn't one to be seen. – Oded Jan 29 '13 at 20:29
  • @Oded Oh well - thanks for clarifying At least now I know for the next time... – Spontifixus Jan 29 '13 at 20:34

There was a Zero Width Space character just after .Re.

Nothing wrong with the highlighter - unless you believe it should catch this.

  • No it shouldn't catch that... – Spontifixus Jan 29 '13 at 20:13
