Incorrect rendering of text

I was reading this post, and noticed that the [] for notating an array rendered as what I can only assume is a checkbox.


Perhaps a checkbox should only be shown if [] appears at the start of the line…

private byte data;

oh no!

I mean it does work when you’re writing code in code tags

private byte[] data;

But like sometimes you want to talk about a byte in a sentence and it’s really dumb to not be able to do that. It’s the same level as dumb and silly as every stack trace posted to the forum being full of :stuck_out_tongue: because the substring :p just gets parsed as the emoji instead. That’s at least fixed here: aaa:paaa

I think I found the solution to the :​p problem. Simply using a zero width space is absolutely never going to cause any problems at all!
