My comment code block was not converted properly, is this a bug?

When I mark an inline code section in a post, it can contain a single space if I want it to. For example:

This line of text has a containing a single white-space character.

When you write the same markup in a comment, it comes out as:

This line of text has a ` ` containing a single white-space character.

Normally, I would use quotation marks instead, e.g. " ", but that's not always clear whether or not the user should include the quotation marks in his code.

  • @Tim Stone: I see, that's... interesting. I guess they didn't think of just checking to see if a comment was abusing the comment length limit by using the back ticks. Instead, the solution is to introduce another limitation. – Andy E Sep 8 '11 at 17:44
  • Yeah, I was a little sketchy on the implementation as well, even though I conceded that this is probably used very uncommonly for legitimate purposes. – Tim Stone Sep 8 '11 at 17:50
  • Close enough as a dupe; after all, a space-only code span by design starts with a space. – balpha Sep 8 '11 at 18:07
