Some text is invisible in the How to Format help block because of a bad combination of text and background color:

That's meant to read

► backtick escapes `like _so_`

but the backquoted portion is nearly invisible (white text on light gray background).

How to reproduce the bug:

  1. Go to the Ask Question page.
  2. Click in the body textarea. The box with the invisible text should appear.

This design issue has been fixed in the How to Format section.

Currently the text is visible correctly:

► backtick escapes `like _so_`
