in reply to More ways to download code...

In many of my posts I enjoyed the fact that in-line code fragments were left - ehr - in line. So, if I wanted to write:
... now $this is a reference to $that...
I simply wrote:
... now <c>$this</c> is a reference to <c>$that</c>...
that is, I used code blocks to have code formatting. This was consistent to the fact that I used these tags to refer to code, instead of using TT tags to refer to a formatting. Content instead of shape.

This is no longer possible, I see:

... now $this is a reference to $that...
While it requires only a small behaviour shift for the future (but I think that this is a step backwards, forcing people to think about the shape more than the content), it's rather annoying that this breaks up earlier posts. Is it possible to restore the previous behaviour?

Update: ... and of course this post loses meaning once the bug has been fixed :) Thanks demerphq.

perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

Don't fool yourself.

    This was a bug. Sorry. Should be fixed now.
