Example answer with bug.

By indenting the snippet generating comments, you can make a pretty odd snippet style, where the button titles are shown in a monospaced font.

let test = "Hello, world!";
<html>
<body>
Test
</body>
</html>

Image for those on mobile:

    I don't get it? What's wrong? Im on mobile, maybe it looks different to me – dustytrash Nov 25 '19 at 5:10
  • @dustytrash, I confirm that a mobile version shows snippets incorrectly (it should look like this, but actually looks like this). I'm filing a report on it. – Arhadthedev Nov 25 '19 at 8:19

    @dustytrash, denied reporting, it looks like status-bydesign: Can't run Stack code Snippets on the mobile site. – Arhadthedev Nov 25 '19 at 8:23

    @JL2210 I wonder how many levels in you can go... – David Wheatley Nov 25 '19 at 17:05

Eh... The snippet editor itself should never produce output like this... You have to go out of your way to trigger it, at which point it looks completely broken in the editor preview:

snippet appears as "<pre>sif647</pre>" in the preview

If your goal is to make your post look weird or broken, you can do that in many ways. And if you really want to involve snippets, you can get a hell of a lot crazier than just monospaced text...

let test = "Hello, world!";
<html>
<body>
Test
</body>
</html>

    Isn't it something that should be fixed if a lot of people start abusing it? – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Jan 6 at 22:52

    Why? Folks can put all sorts of stupid stuff in their posts. That's why we have flagging and editing. – Shog9 Jan 7 at 1:23

    So should we edit this to remove the broken snippet editor? ;) – Luuklag Jan 7 at 9:09
  • TL;DR: It's not a bug, it's a feature. – David Wheatley Jan 7 at 17:02
