When I view question/answer, you can see the code blocks with syntax highlighting. But if I click on the code block to be able to horizontally scroll, all syntax highlighting is lost and the text color is a very hard to read grey on a white background. Is it possible to get syntax highlighting on the code block view, or at least black text?


  • What about Whitespace? Can we have highlighting there?
