The markdown help states:-

> Create a blockquote by
> prepending “>” to each line.

This used to produce a yellow background - making it particularly useful for highlighting warnings etc. Now it produces an ugly grey sidebar (although I note the markdown help still seems to use the previous behaviour)

I also use the StackExchange app on my iPad and noticed that the highlighting still works there!

text I would like to highlight

Is it possible to revert to the former?

I also use the official Stack Exchange iOS App on my iPad and this shows the yellow highlighting!

    I can't stand the new "blends right in with everything else" code formatting. I dunno if we can customize that stuff. I can look into this (anyone can ask about it on Meta.SE, also)...ping me here overnight (aka, daytime down under) so I remember to do tomorrow.
