Alternative to backtick escapes for non-US keyboard?
I know lot of people are having problems with the backtick ` because of their keyboard. (me to I don't have it anywhere)
Considering we are on Stack Overflow and the backtick is one of the most used char to format here why you don't replace it with a character that every keyboard has?
You can easly implement it with a double underscore __ or many other characters other than the d*mn backtick.
|code| !code! ^code^ ==code== $code$ +code- ++code++ --code-- ;;code;; ]code} (and thousands of other example better than backtick)
Why did you use that backtick (ye i know the shell)
You can leave the backtick as escape plus adding one of the suggested type to be perfectly backward-compatbile
of course i am talking about comments because when posting a question there is the tooblar up there
why close a suggestion that got +4 votes?
