I've noticed that using markdown inline code by surrounding your post with backticks does not strip the backticks. For instance, if I type
it should render (inline) as
Instead, it renders as
This only seems to happen using single-backticks for inline code. Triple-backticks for block code work fine.
Actually, I'm now realizing that those backticks aren't text. Are they a stylistic choice? If so, this might actually be a feature request to change it to something else rather than a bug report (in which case I can resubmit over there.)
it's on purpose, added manually through the CSS. I don't like it much either, but yeah, it's not a bug!
