As title says: don't you agree that blockquotes are almost invisible?

I would suggest to improve the contrast, the margin or the indentation; maybe a shadow?

Here is a blockquote as an example

  • \$\begingroup\$ @stevenvh probably yes, even though I think that every laptop has contrast problems. But, while that makes the quote almost invisible, I think that the difference in background was/still-is very low by design... \$\endgroup\$ – clabacchio Mar 2 '12 at 8:23

I have darkened the blockquote background color, also made the left border solid and darker. Should be significantly more visible than before. The change will be in the next prod build.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Perhaps it's the monitor I'm using, but on Meta.EE I can't still see clearly the blockquotes: can they be a bit darker too? \$\endgroup\$ – clabacchio Mar 4 '14 at 12:32
