To be able to use the pipe symbol in the cell of a markdown table it should escaped by a backslash (this to avoid mixing up with the pipe symbol as column separator).

This works OK for the markdown processing (the escaped pipe symbol is ignored), however the doxygen processing keeps the escape (backslash) in the generated output.

Solution is likely to add the support for escaped pipe symbols.
(Maybe limited to markdown sections if conflicts might arise).

Markdown also supports escaped colon (which maybe should be handled as well).
