Contexts have backticks, which conflict with the normal way to enter inline code. How do I enter an inline context, since the initial approach:
doesn't work ( `System`` ).
This is so common in Mathematica that I suggest this should be specially included in the editor help or the FAQ on this site. Let me list the most common usages:
Contexts, for example,
``Global` `` (note the space before the closing
Precision of numbers, for example,
Accuracy of numbers, for example,
StringForm expressions, for example,
StringForm["x = ``", x]
```StringForm["x = ``", x]```
And here the question comes up, how to include a double backtick (
``) in inline code? Generally, if you want to include
n consecutive backticks, surround the inline code span with
n+1 backticks. For this reason, if the inline code has a backtick at the very end, you need to put a space after it. Don't worry, this space will be stripped when the MarkDown is rendered.
According to this MSO question, you can use double backticks set off by spaces to surround a code snippet:
`` System` ``
