Markdown formatting makes easier to write good looking questions and answers, but sometimes people use ASCII art (like above) to create tables or other symbols to make their question/answer more clear.
This is very handy if it is treated as raw text, but characters in these arts are Markdown keywords too, so it will turn these into something like this:
Even if we put the ASCII table to a blockquote or a code sample it still displayed wrong. For example in this question: MySQL and PHP Many-to-Many Database Relationships
Here you can see that this process ruined the allign of the vertical lines.
Is there a way to turn off the Markdown converter tool so the pasted ASCII table will be displayed as plain/raw text? Some keyword/function like:
<rawtext> Plain text here. </rawtext>
If no, could we implement this function? Or in the other hand how should we treat ASCII tables/illustrations like this?
