Maybe it is a bug, but on SO, SF, SU and their metas is it possible to style the tags:



The above on MSO looks like

enter image description here

If it is not a bug, why other sites of SE network don't allow to do it? For example, on MSE it doesn't change tag size

Of all styling I can only apply emphasis (italic): .

So why tag styling is supported on SO, SU and SF? Tag styling should be completely turned off or be enabled on all sites.

    The real question is why on earth do SO, SU, and SF allow to style the tags? – mhlester Jul 1 '14 at 17:22

    Looks like a bug to me. – Kevin Jul 1 '14 at 17:30
  • It's just the way the styling worked out. On MSO, used in your example, the font-size for tags is a percentage. Here on MSE, the font-size is an explicit pixel size - so the sizing effects of header elements around it won't do anything. Different sites, different themes, different results. – animuson Jul 1 '14 at 17:57

    Laura, why? It was such a beautiful tag :( – nicael Jul 1 '14 at 18:02

Generally, we only go out of our way to block obnoxious abuse of markup when someone goes out of their way to abuse it obnoxiously.

So... y'know...

    Are you seriously challenging nicael to abuse something obnoxiously? :) – mhlester Jul 1 '14 at 18:15
