Yet another set of CSS rules to use with Dark Theme. I actually quite like the Dark Theme so the changes are minimal. Main features are:

  • Enlarges the textarea for editing posts. (I have a largish screen - you may want to reduce the values a bit.)
  • Code will appear in a slightly different colour to make it stand out - particularly useful for code snippets embedded in paragraph text. (It's still bright, just has a blue/mauve tinge.)
  • Links have a reverse video effect when the pointer hovers over them and are no longer underlined.
  • The red plus (+) to show wrapped code is now yellow.
  • readmore blocks now have a very dark (purplish) background instead of black.
textarea { width: 64em; height: 32em; } tt { color: #ccccff; background-color: inherit; } div.readmore, div.readmore * { background-color: #110811; } a:link { color: #ccffff; background-color: inherit; text-decoration: none; } a:visited { color: #ffffcc; background-color: inherit; text-decoration: none; } a:link:hover { color: #000000; background-color: #ccffff; text-decoration: none; } a:visited:hover { color: #000000; background-color: #ffffcc; text-decoration: none; } a:link:hover u, a:visited:hover u { color: #0000ff; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration: none; } div.codeblock > tt.codetext font[color="red"] { color: #ffff00; background-color: inherit; font-weight: bolder; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
