WMD unable to render markup inside words

    Related question - loosely - how do you get back-ticks into running text? Makes annotating shell scripts hard - the only way I've found is to put the text into a code block. But that can interrupt the flow of a paragraph. Sep 27 '09 at 18:21

No. It won't work in the middle of words.
