Thanks, the change looks great! Tested locally and it performs as expected.


As discussed on IRC, there doesn't seem to be any specific motivation to
add the CSS rule other than "preserve the status quo" w.r.t. coloring,
but I think it's reasonable to make it stand out, and this matches what
I've seen on many other websites, so, merged to pu.
