#15910 closed defect (fixed)

<code> looks like Normal Text in Help Browser

Reported by: Hb--- Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone: 18.02
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: help browser CSS formatting wiki Cc:

Description (last modified by Hb---)

Keystrokes, key=value pairs and URLs are formatted in the Wiki by enclosing them with ` characters (ASCII 96). TracWiki translates this to <code>. The alternative is {{{three curly brackets}}} which is translated to <preformat> in HTML.

The Wiki shows <code> in a monospaced font with a brown frame.

In the Online Help Browser both styles are missing. Therefore important keywords can't be distinguished from normal text, see wiki:/Help/ErrorMessages.

JOSM seems to strip some parts of the wiki page before displaying according to DevelopersGuide/HelpSystem

Expected result is that Online Help pages look them same as Wiki pages. So changing the wikis CSS is an option, but a bad one.

Java does not show the border because <code> is an Inline-Element in HTML and Java does not understand display:block; to make a Block-element from it. So margin, border and padding cannot be used. Java 9 has the same limitations.

But a more colored background and a slightly larger font can be used to better distinguish <code> from normal text. Please see my suggestion in the Help Browser: Main Help (En or De) > HowTo (second link in content) > SandBox (last link on page).

Please see the patch. Perhaps font-size:108% is even suitable.
