If I write something like `Hello World` (or ```Hello World```) and then put a lot of spaces after "Hello" but before the space (before " World"), it will make the inline code overflow on the right side.

Here is an example:

Hello World Test abc

Here is a screenshot if it doesn't work on your browser:

Another example I saw on a post on StackOverflow:

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.4, I tried this bug on Google Chrome 81 and Opera 68 and it worked as in the screenshot.

I also tried on Firefox but the bug doesn't work, there is no overflow.

    The correct way to create a code block is to put the 3 backticks on separate lines, not on the same line as the code. What you have there is inline code (code which is meant to be on a line of text). So I don't think this is a huge issue. May 8, 2020 at 23:07

    @KodosJohnson I've replaced the term and added an example from SO. It might not be a huge issue but since new users often don't know how to use format code using backticks, it can happen sometimes.
