Tables, Inline Code, and `|`

Related to Tables, Latex and |

Occurs with or without Custom CSS

Within a table, inline code containing | also includes the escape backslash, displaying \|.

Steps to reproduce

  | | | |
a\|b\|c | 
`a\|b\|c` | 
`a|b|c` | 




Expected result

An escaped pipe character (\|) should display in the table as |. A second \ would be required to show the backslash (\\| --> \|)

Actual result

The escape character also shows, displaying \| in the table, making a standalone pipe (in inline code) unattainable.
