Escape Markdown

At times, you might use special characters in your display text where you don’t intend to use Markdown syntax. To escape Markdown in this scenario, add the \character before the character that is being picked up as Markdown.

Example - If you’re trying to create an email link: [first_lastname.example.com](mailto:first_lastname.example.com)

The _ in the display text might be picked up as Markdown but you can escape this by adding a \ in front of the _ so your link will look like this: [first\_lastname.example.com](mailto:first_lastname.example.com)
