Thank you. Actually this <code> behavior might be another illustration of that Perl's misunderstanding "UTF-8 literal" and "Unicode literal" :-)

    Except that there are no "Unicode literals".

    This has nothing to do with Perl. What we see here are different rules for the acceptable character sets of PerlMonks markup. BTST: Today I was surprised when I noticed that I could write "Rīga" in the text of an article, but not in its title.

      The site itself also prepares us to the Perl way of thinking? :-)

        In the sense of: Don't blame Perl for questionable decisions by Perl programmers: Definitely yes!
