Related. This suggestion has been added as an answer.

On Ask Ubuntu, this is what our code looks like compared to our quote style:

Code here is obviously code.

But quotes look almost the same.

Okay, so there is some difference - font and width of block.

But on (This is meta SE) they are obviously different:

Could we have it that our quote block is less similar to the code block? My suggestion wouldn't be a new colour, but that you have a dark grey line at the edge:

enter image description here

The dark grey is (2,0,196) in HSL, or c4c4c4ff in RGB

I took the line colouring from the yelow one - it goes from (33,255,241) to (35,255,199), a change of (2,0,-42) so I did the same with the grey, from (0,0,238) to (2,0,196). These are all HSL colour numbers.

  • I would ask for a different opinion, but maybe add your solution as an answer to that question instead of duping it.

  • I don't think it is hard to tell the difference, personally.

  • Okay then :) If you see the related link, then another reason is that quote embedded code is the same colour (or almost identical on the main site)
