I just added a post notice to a question and saw the font had dropped down a size:

Post notice font problem

I haven't added a post notice in several days so I don't know when it started doing this, but could it be related to the change in code block font size?

  • @YannisRizos: I heard that just yesterday as “99 little bugs on the wall, 99 little bugs. Take one down, pass it around, 102 little bugs on the wall.”

  • @JoshK 102!? Probably someone who still resists unit testing... :P

For the sake of sanity, we recently switched from using full-blown Markdown to using MarkdownMini (that's the version used in comments and in chat) in post notices.

While full Markdown wraps (almost) everything in <p> tags, MarkdownMini does not (since there aren't really paragraphs in comments).

The style rules in the CSS however expect the text to be in <p> tags. In the next built, that expectation will be met again.
