I expect that Live Preview and Reading mode would have the same behavior for custom internal link text where the pipe character needs to be escaped, like the help page describes.
Links that are missing an escape before the pipe render and work in Live Preview, but do not work in Reading View.

I’m new to Obsidian, and this came up when I was trying to add custom internal link text in a table for the first time.
I understand now that an escape character is required, but the different behavior between Live Preview and Reading View initially made it harder for me to determine what the problem was. The correct formatting would be clearer to new users if the link also did not work without an escape character in Live Preview.
