This is driving me absolutely bananas so I have to ask about it at this point. I created a post that contains multiple inline code tags containing the letter
L in it's lowercase form. However, these lowercase
Ls appear, at least visually, like they've been translated to uppercase:
As a developer, I have myself assuming that this is an effect of the font used, and that it is by design. However, as an end user it's driving me up the wall... Is this a bug, or is this by design to ensure that readers can tell the difference between
I? I noticed it doesn't happen here on meta.
Note: I purposely excluded the bug tag because it could be by design, which, I would absolutely understand. Once an answer confirms/denies this, the bug tag will be added or remain excluded as indicated by the confirmation/denial.
