Make links in monospaced format look more like links.

If you go to https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/25837/retag-request-source-control it's impossible to know that those tags are, in fact, also links.

What change do you propose so that links in code blocks really look like links?

  • Why do you say it's impossible to tell? I can only tell links by the dotted underline, which those links do have.

  • @mmyers: look at the screenshot. It seems the underline showing depends on the Font/OS/Browser (Firefox 3.5 on Windows 2000).

  • It's the same in Opera (though you could do with some freehand circles to mark it out) where the CSS for code overtakes links.

    Ultimately, tags aren't code. Perhaps don't put them in code markup? Oct 14, 2009 at 15:50
  • @Marc Gravell: I used to use <kbd>, but Jeff thought we were missusing it. Am I wrong?
