Probably not -- it doesn't seem to be needed, at least not in the
distributed version of PmWiki. The only time ` has special meaning
is when it's in front of a WikiWord, and in the rare case that an
author needs a ` immediately in front of a WikiWord it can be written as
`[==]WikiWord or `WikiWord .
DaveG's suggestion that `WikiWord automatically disables
it as a WikiWord for the remainder of the page makes *excellent*
sense to me. An author can always force a later link by using
[[WikiWord]], and in the odd case that an author wants to suppress
just one instance of a WikiWord but leave later ones enabled,
they can use [=WikiWord=] for the suppression.
Unless anyone has an objection, I think I'll implement this particular
P.S.: A brief reminder to folks about the $WikiWordCountMax variable,
which can be used to limit the number of times a WikiWord is treated
as a link in a page. :-)
