Inconsistent behaviour of backslash in wiki renderer

      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:

      \
      

      single backslash - Escape special character
      https://support.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa?section=miscellaneous

      double backslash - Creates a line break. Not often needed, most of the time the wiki renderer will guess new lines for you appropriately.
      https://support.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa?section=breaks

      triple backslash - Displays all three characters

      In a case where user will need to use backslash as a part of their comment there isn't any way to enter it in the field.
      For e.g.

      I:\Admin\_IT Finance 
      

      is displayed as:
      I:\Admin_IT Finance
