      Description

      Wiki Markup Limitations

      This is caused by a limitation in the wiki markup language / renderer described at CONF-2494 and cannot be fixed without breaking backwards compatibility.

      Workaround

      Insert the html escape sequence for the backslash character as:

      \
      

      The following markup doesn't work as expected:

      d:\jira\\_version_\atlassian-jira-version.jar

      I would have expected the pair of backslashes to produce a single backslash and the first "version" to be italicised.

      Also double backslash denotes a 'line break'
