[BUG] Markdown escaped characters


Backslash does not escape characters.

Atom interprets an with an backslash escaped underline character as start of an italic sequence. The same behaviour is happening with *s.

Like in the Markdown definition is written:

Markdown allows you to use backslash escapes to generate literal
characters which would otherwise have special meaning in Markdown’s
formatting syntax.


I assume you mean in the editor, not in the Markdown Preview? If so, please file a bug on the language-gfm package.


You’re right. Thanx!
