#42651 closed enhancement (fixed)

Code within a field description should not be italic

Given some descriptive text in the admin area such as the following, the text within the <code> element appears in italic, but ideally it should not.

<p class="description">This is italic and so is <code>$this</code>.</p>

Some CSS along the lines of .description code { font-style: normal; } should do the trick.

To make just the text inside the code tags not italic, you'll want to include this in the CSS:

.description code { font-style: normal; }
