[Edit] I first noticed this issue while working on a Python thread, but later I discovered it also affected a C# thread. So it was bigger than just Python (I changed the title for the sake of SEO). I was using IE 8 when I experienced the issue. Meanwhile, I found code prettifying worked in Firefox, and later, it returned to IE 8. ...hmm?
I reviewed the meta post discussing how to ensure code blocks in a post get proper syntax formatting. However, I created a python question and all the line breaks and spacing are stripped out.
The question is tagged for python (though, not "py", as the meta post implies it should be, however "py" isn't an existing GISSE tag and it seems redundant to create it). So while I think I built it correctly, I'm just curious if there is something I'm overlooking that is causing the .py code to get trimmed.
It definitely makes it harder for folks to "see at a glance" anything that might be wrong in the code. Also, if someone copy/pastes the code into their editor, they will have to go to the trouble to clean it before they could even run it. So I'd definitely like to fix the py code in that post if possible.
