The Comment You're Replying To

I'm not sure, I don't remember precisely. And maybe nothing has changed recently and I am just noticing now because I resized my window or something. I did turn off my ad blocker but that doesn't change the width of the columns.

Anyway, what I now see is the left "gutter" (not sure what to call it) is just a hair below 4 inches, so it is eating up what I would call a very significant chunk of the window. The one on the right, on the other hand, is about 2.5 inches, and that seems reasonable. It seems I'm better making my window narrower until the left gutter disappears (which only happens after the right has disappeared). But if I make my window wider, I'm punished with a lot of wasted space. At what I would consider to be a typical width for my browser window, the main (middle) part of the page is about 11 inches, so the two gutters take up over a third of the space.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>
