EDIT: (jcolebrand)

Do you want to see the code block font size changed? Vote up for yes, down for no.

And comment or upvote below with a size if yes. Thank you. - jco


Original:

Is this intentional? It looks a little out of place.

I went over to SO to compare and there are font size is almost the same, but on this site there is a stark difference:

On dba.stackexchange.com

On stackoverflow.com, as comparison

Generally if you can suggest a better size, we can ask the team@ to look the situation, and maybe "correct" it, but I don't think too many people object to the smaller size. I for one am happy with the smaller size, as it gives more room for code on the screen. –  jcolebrand Oct 2 '11 at 20:03
    
@jcoldebrand: Can we keep the size comparable to the normal text size. Not noticeably smaller or bigger? –  Lazer Oct 3 '11 at 7:20
    
I almost always adjust my answers so code blocks don't add a horizontal scrollbar (at least in Chrome) - I hope no-one makes it bigger or I'm going to have to do a lot of editing :) –  Jack Douglas Oct 3 '11 at 11:42
    
I concur @JackDouglas I dont' want it much larger. –  jcolebrand Oct 3 '11 at 15:04
    
@Lazer let's keep it simple. Let's let people vote this Q up or down, and after a couple months we should have an idea. I'll edit the Q. –  jcolebrand Oct 3 '11 at 15:04
    
Wow, only two people care about this question after all this time? I was going to up-vote because I don't like the smaller size when code is placed it inline (I don't mind it in blocks, it just looks funny to me when inline). But it doesn't seem like I should bother. –  Aaron Bertrand Dec 17 '12 at 21:59
    
And I mean in a question/answer, not in a comment, where it looks fine. :-\ Here is an example from this answer: i.stack.imgur.com/J1D9g.png –  Aaron Bertrand Dec 17 '12 at 22:02

Indeed this is intentional; you'll also notice a smaller code font size on

http://codereview.stackexchange.com

and

Okay, thanks. But it does not look right, imo. For a minute I was confused if there was a new setting here to change the size of the code. –  Lazer Oct 2 '11 at 18:22

@Lazer: I like smaller code. Browsers can zoom or you can change font size in your browser –  gbn Oct 4 '11 at 8:14
    
But @gbn, you can't zoom in on inline code but not the rest of the text. The problem I have is not that the text is small, but that inline code is noticeably smaller than the body text. Why can't they be the same size? –  Aaron Bertrand Dec 17 '12 at 22:03
