We are currently planning to migrate to a different platform for the forum. We will announce this fact both here and on Twitter, once we have settled on a solution.

What's up with font color changes when using commas, and single quote's?

I've noticed that whenever I compose a sentence like this:

what's with commas, and quotes? <-- the text starts with the green font (nighttime mode), but whenever I get to either a comma or a single quote the text up to that point turns white. This remains until I put a final punctuation mark at the end of the sentence.

At first I thought it was a bug, but maybe its a feature of some sort? It does seem to differential between prose and meta stuff like links. Is that the purpose?

I'm starting to like it (I think), but if I decide I don't like it can I turn it off?

  • This is some syntax highlighting that is carrying over from another identifier, without any context there is no way anyone can tell what is happening.

  • Here's an example of what I'm seeing (see attached)

  • I have no idea what would be causing this – is this the only contents of the file, or did you crop the image?
