No about the subject but what's your vscode theme to have different fonts applied like const, import words, etc.

I’m using the font Dank Mono which has italicized versions for certain keywords. This is also dependent upon the theme you’re using and what it decides to make italic. The theme I’m using is Night Owl

It's a pretty nice release! I was pleasantly surprised by the MDN reference links for CSS and HTML mainly because I released an extension that does pretty much the same but for CSS only. And I didn't even know you were going to add this! :)

Me too Gift. There have been a bunch of times where I spent too much time adjusting the size of that panel. It's nice to just show/hide it completely this way now.
