Considering that IE and Windows XP own significant (if not still majority) shares in their respective markets, I find it hard to believe that a feature would be implemented here which does not work in those environments. However, I've tested this in one machine with IE 7 and another with IE 8, both running Windows XP SP3, and the code does not work for me.

Is it just me, or is this a known issue?

A fix for this will go out in the next build.

The CSS for sketchy(meta) sites has a bit of hack for blockquote's, and I missed that hack when adapting them for the new spoiler syntax.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Again, this issue is not isolated to meta sites. The issue is seen on the parent site as well. Why do we keep getting told this? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Iszi - the same fix is being applied to parent sites. "sketchy(meta)" is generally read as "sketchy and sketchymeta" just like S(OFU) is read as "SO and SF and SU". \$\endgroup\$ Commented Dec 4, 2010 at 3:35
