Q: In-Universe explanation why the founder seem so crude

ShadeIn Star Trek - Deep Space 9, it is explained that Odo has some troubles (for lack of a better word) with shapeshifting. This results in him to look crude, his features unfinished (e.g. his ears are simple surfaces instead of the wobbles we have: In the series, it is also mentioned that the Found...

ISTR being told that text in code markdown isn't handled as well by screen readers as text in quote markdown. Anyone recall a discussion about that?
I edited an answer, and I see that the adjacent answer has a quote from the script rendered as code so it "looks" more like a paper script, but I have an impulse to change that to a simple quote.
I know some people suggest edits to change code quotes to quote quotes citing it's because of screen readers but I don't know what the problem with screen readers is
Well, it's better for mobile too, since code blocks don't wrap properly.

@DavidW Could be that screen readers might read out the <code> or <pre> tags in a code block as "less-than sign code grater-than sign (the actual text) less-than sign code back-slash grater-than sign" which isn't so lekker
@CerealBot "I am in this picture and I don't like it"
@fez Just guessing, but it probably also reads out line breaks, which is useful for code but annoying in the middle of a sentence.

Q: Why is there even an Amazon Princess?

FirestrykeIn the DC universe, Wonder Woman is the Princess of the Amazons. Why is she? The Amazons are immortal so why would Hippolyte need an heir? Is there an in-universe explanation for this?

@DavidW I think it's worse than that, and anything in code blocks gets read letter-by-letter

Q: What are the biggest DC powerhouses?

FirestrykeThere are tons of heroes and villains in the DC universe, but which ones are the most powerful? Which one is the most powerful? And what makes them powerful? This is in relation to the comics. Please give examples and evidence.

@Jenayah All the more reason to convert them to proper quotes then.

Oh, that's so much easier to read!

Q: Does the Queen know about wizards?

Azor Ahai -him-Famously, the Minister for Magic introduces themself to the Prime Minster of the UK, but is the Queen aware of the Wizarding World?

Huh. My spill-chucker knows how to correctly spell "Tatooine" and "Coruscant." I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not.
10:00 PM
@fez I remember seeing it in one of TJL's edit summaries; checking on the net, it seems to vary between screen readers. Still, it's best to properly format them
