    Code:
    Because it seems to me that it is very thin and difficult to read...
    Code:
    Even when you enclose the CODE tags within bold tags, this makes it differently unreadable...  
    A sample alphabet: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ 1234567890 abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
    Thanks!

    [codebox]How does it look if you select a font like Arial Black? There may be others...[/codebox]

    Aha, I don't normally ever use these code thingies, but there is a difference in "fonting" capability between using plain "code" as opposed to "codebox."

    Code:
    One of the important things about CODE is that it gives you a Fixed Pitch font, which seems to be Courier New - and that's apparently the only one available...

    Oddly, the style sheet for "Oldstyle Blue" has these fonts lists for the code box: font-family: Courier, "Courier New", Verdana, Arial;. I would have expected the generic designation monospace as the third and last selection. Using monospace as the first and/or only font would give you control through your browser settings; that might be do-able, perhaps on a copy of the skin for testing.
