I tend to run in Night Mode. Occasionally, I’ll see posts which appear to have a black (or close) font color on the charcoal background of the Night Mode. These, shall we say, tend to be difficult to read :-). The usual means of reading on other sides (select the text) doesn’t make things better — the only way to read them is to turn off Night Mode.
I don’t know if some folks have selected a fond & color or something or what. If there’s a way the forum software can fix things up (I don’t know — look out for dark colored fonts or something), that would be good. There’s a workaround so not at all critical, but it would improve the experience of us dark/night mode-ers.
An example with this phenomenon is here.
(The example to which I linked is an older post (2019), so maybe that’s the cause. I didn’t notice the date on other examples).
Another, more recent, example can be found in this comment.

Many thanks for pointing this out Fred. I have edited those posts and left an EDIT line at the foot of the first as an example of the problem. Should you find others, please drop me a note and I will fix. (I ran afoul of this WP ‘feature’ too!)
The issue is caused by html formatting that has been brought into the post by the use of copy & paste from an outside application or web page.
Word Press is finicky about formatting which should only be done from within the style box when posting. Copy & Paste from an exterior source generally causes formatting issues. In this case, the Night mode is overruled by the formatting making the text invisible.

Thanks for the update — that makes sense. The so-called smart copy-n-paste strikes again. I’ll keep an eye out and let you know if I see anything.
