Make links in monospaced format look more like links.

Something I spotted on this answer today: If a link's text contains backticked code, there is no visual change when hovering over it.

Here is an example of what I mean. Edit: Okay, that's a bad example, because on meta it does change when hovered... but see the link above, on main SO there is no visual change when hovering over a backticked link. On meta, though, there is no indication that it is a link until you hover over it, which is also not ideal.

It should either still show the underline (like a normal link), or change the color of the text and/or background slightly, since this is how all other links in text on the site behave.

I'm not sure whether this is a bug or a feature request, but I'm tagging it as bug since I think it was probably an oversight (i.e. it probably wasn't designed this way on purpose).
