If, in a question:

  • I type "UN" {backslash} {asterisk} "X", it comes out as UN\*X, with a backslash before the asterisk.

  • I type {backquote} "C" ":" {backslash} "Program Files" {backslash} "Wireshark" {backquote}, it comes out as C:\\Program Files\\Wireshark, with both backslashes doubled.

If, in a comment:

  • I type "UN" {backslash} {star} "X", it comes out as UN\*X, with a backslash before the asterisk.

  • I type {backquote} "C" ":" {backslash} "Program Files" {backslash} "Wireshark" {backquote}, it comes out as C:\\Program Files\\Wireshark, with both backslashes doubled.

If I type {backquote} "C" ":" {backslash} "Program Files" {backslash} "Wireshark" {backquote} after manually applying the fix for OSQA bug 739 I get

C:\Program Files\Wireshark
