# Improve backticks help text

I found the Markdown help confusing:

Use backticks to create an inline  span:

 

Press the <Tab> key, then type a $. It's confusing because the second line itself is formatted using inline code span. It would be clearer to also display the rendered line (with "<Tab>" and "$" as code, and no backticks).

And indeed, some are typing <Tab> (screen capture) ;-) –  Arjan Apr 28 '12 at 18:36

Actually the whole of that page does not show the output of any markdown, only the markup.

Perhaps it could be a little more explicit that this is the case, but it is clear well before you've read the whole thing.
