Currently, backticks yield tags, which yield block-level formatting in the final HTML output:

The problem is, according to the documentation at backticks are supposed to yield inline formatting, not block formatting. That is, text between the backticks should not appear on a new line.

The solution is for the Markdown processor to yield instead of :

Markdown: ...
Source HTML: ...
Final HTML: ...

What you see is probably due to indenting >=4 spaces.

Can you please attach a self-contained example (source+config file in a tar or zip) that allows me to reproduce the problem?

Hi Dimitri,

Find attached a test.cs and doxygen.config that demonstrate the bug, plus a screenshot of the results they produce on my machine with doxygen 1.8.0.

Hi Marco,

Thanks for the example.

I now realize behaves differently for C# than it does for C++ (to make it compatible with other C# tools). As a result backticks indeed give the wrong results. I'll use instead as you suggested.
