There seems to have been a recent change, whereby all text highlighted using the backtick formatting has acquired a colour background. This is fine in a code block but irritating when the format is applied to a keyword or two in regular text like this.
Much of what I post is related to Oracle, which is old-fashioned enough to use underscores rather than CamelCase. Unfortunately this clashes with the formatting for italicisation. So I need to use backticks if I want to refer to (say)
DBA_TABLESPACES, otherwise it comes out like this: DBA_TABLESPACES (provided there is a subsequent matching underscore _ ).
The advice to use <PRE> instead doesn't help in this scenario, as the underscore formatting takes precedence.
Thanks to whoever edited my question and "fixed" the formatting, but I deliberately wrote it that way to show what happens when a post has two _ in it.
