I'm sorry for nitpicking but this is just something to make Stack Overflow even more perfect :)

If the question poster has posted a comment (e.g. under an answer), his/her name has a lightblue background to emphasise this. However, if you edit your answer, the blue background has gone.

Perhaps this could be fixed, just for consistency.

  • Your answer looks fine to me. In your picture, it looks like your JavaScript did not completely execute, since the color syntax highlighting is also missing in your edited answer.

  • @Robert Harvey: The syntax coloring is missing too indeed. It is all solved when refreshing the page though, so probably you won't see it if you just navigate to the answer.

  • Right. So something got munged when the answer was edited. Probably the relevant JavaScript just needs to be re-executed.

    @Robert Harvey: Not sure what's happening behind the scenes, but just for the record I don't get any JavaScript errors.

  • I've found that the sites have been lagging a lot these past two days at around this time for quite a while. The page never completely loads until you refresh it. That includes page content, ads, javascripted stuff, etc. I figured it was a problem with the server but it might be worth mentioning. Jul 12, 2011 at 6:24
  • @Jeff Mercado: I'm also experimenting this currently.

    @pimvdb: It turns out there seems to be some connection problems. Jul 12, 2011 at 9:52

Fixed in latest, also takes care of allowing you to see the comments during edit and also fixes the syntax highlighting issue.
