WMD unable to render markup inside words

In this post I noticed that the OP used the following syntax.'

*h1*s

I changed it to h1's but it's technically not correct English. Also, I'm curious how to handle it.

@Bart Your assumption is correct. I didn't find that answer myself. (WMD? How did you look for it, mate?!) – Konrad Viltersten Dec 4 '12 at 20:55

I'm always looking for WMDs......but in this case I searched "markdown inside words" remembering an earlier dupe. <--- Long story short, I spend far too much time here. – Bart Dec 4 '12 at 20:56
    
In this case I'd use h1s, since the <h1> tag is code. – CodesInChaos Dec 4 '12 at 20:58
    
Yeah, or I abuse a hyphen in such cases: h1-s – Bart Dec 4 '12 at 20:58
    
@CodesInChaos That doesn't look right. Did you intend to leave the space there? – Konrad Viltersten Dec 4 '12 at 20:59
    
@Bart Shame on you! Go and wash your keyboard with soap! Spend some time here instead! :) – Konrad Viltersten Dec 4 '12 at 21:02

@KonradViltersten I would, if only I could speak English. But I can't. Not a word. – Bart Dec 4 '12 at 21:04

@KonradViltersten Which space? The margins of inline code are a bit larger than I'd like, but I still think it's the semantically correct choice. – CodesInChaos Dec 4 '12 at 21:05
    
@Bart I see, I see. In that case I will type slowly so you get what I say. :) – Konrad Viltersten Dec 4 '12 at 21:13
    
@CodesInChaos On my screen it sure looks like "h1 s". But I think I know what you mean. Since I can't edit your comment, I can't see the source code for it. – Konrad Viltersten Dec 4 '12 at 21:14

Fixed it for you.

This will target **all** <i>h1</i>s and <i>p</i>s.

This will target all h1s and ps.

Markdown is not perfect. It does a fantastic job almost all the time.
