I frequently format function / variable names as monospace blocks for easier reading, but at the same time I often want to create hyperlinks of them to the relevant documentation. However, you can't do both.


  • monospace only

  • hyperlink only

  • [monospace hyperlink](http://www.example.com)

I'd like the last one to work, but as you can see it doesn't.

Yes you can (do both):

monospace hyperlink


[`monospace hyperlink`](http://www.example.com)

You just have to put backticks inside the square bracket links.
