In addition to my previous question about the blog's design:

I just browsed the article I linked there on a mobile device. Which yields a nice and responsive page. Except for tables, they maintain their original (unresponsive) size. Graphs (which I believe is basically an image) on the other hand does scale down to fit my screen.

After a redesign tables now are responsive, but also fill the width of the site, which is not always needed:

To produce this image I requested the desktopversion through my browser (Chrome) settings.

  • Huh. Looks like the blog is responsive, but they forgot to install a responsive table WordPress plugin. :( Commented Feb 17, 2020 at 15:52
  • Could you link to the blog where this happens, please? Commented Feb 17, 2020 at 16:07

@DavidLongworth, there remains the problem mentioned in the question regarding the graphs in dark mode:


Stack Exchange Blog - Dark Mode - Graphs

Applying a naive inversion to the graph produces this better (but not perfect) result:

Inverted - Stack Exchange Blog - Dark Mode - Graphs

The best result would come from not simply inverting the black and white, but instead assigning them to the dark gray background and text colors.

For a simple fix the inversion is less blinding and more inline with the brightness of the rest of the webpage than leaving it as-is. The division lines would benefit from being lighter, possibly wider.
