When using HTML-command

and setting text like x"\y", x"\y", x"y" or x"y\" inside a td-section will produce broken fields inside the table.

y"\q" y"\z"
y"\\q" y"\\z"
y"q\" y"z\"
y"q\\" y"z\\"

This occurs in version 1.5.9 as well as in 1.5.8.

The problem is that y"\q" was tokenized as
<y"> + <\q> + <">
instead of
+ <"\q">

Note that you do rely heavily on the fact that quoted words do
not need escaping; i.e. "\q" is ok, but if you want to
write just \q, it should be \q, so doxygen does see it as a command.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.6.0. Please verify if this is indeed the case and reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed (include any additional information that you
think can be relevant).
