If we have some inline code, marked up with grave accents, it works properly in the question body, even when there's something right after the accent:

Examples:
I want to find Nth character in a string.
Don't use Collections, those fancy Collections just suck.
I want to use Nth N in my code.

But, if we have exactly same thing in a comment, the formatting falls apart (see the comments).

  • @Justin: I believe it's not. Look at the third example, does feel like a bug, doesn't it?

  • @GSerg, well, it is sub-optimal performance. But I doubt they will look into it any more...

  • @jjnguy It would appear it's now status-completed.

We only support a subset of markdown in comments, and the rules are stricter about what will and won't work.

    Are you sure it's not [status-by-design] ? Otherwise I lose a bet... :P And declining a bug doesn't make as much sense as declaring it by-design.
