I just commented an answer on Stack Overflow. To indicate markup, I surrounded a
<b> tag with backticks. But opposite to my expectations, the comment didn't get properly formatted, the backticks just appeared as backticks, like `<b>`.
As you can see in the comments below, putting an ‘s’ at the end triggers this bug, like
<b>s; strangely enough, I wrote these kind of tags before, like
<span>s, but never got this problem.
