The default prompt for the
root user contains
#. When copy and pasting output of commands run as
root in to a preformatted text block to make them nicely formatted and readable, e.g. like this
[root@localhost ~]# uptime 11:51:46 up 46 min, 2 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00 [root@localhost ~]#
The commands are displayed in light grey italic text which looks odd and somewhat confusing. Here’s a screenshot in case other people are not seeing what I’m seeing.
It seems like the site is treating anything after
# as being comments and applying formatting as such. I’m not copy/pasting any formatting info, it’s just plain text copy/pasted out of a terminal window. Perhaps the site could be made to not apply formatting to text inside preformatted text blocks.
