Both appear identical, but originally Pm said to use the space because
the results without it were not predictable (or somethig like that). 
I've been using the space "just to be sure".

Earlier in the week I asked Pm to make the first two examples on that
page look the same, but he declined for now because it might break
existing content.

I think the last one would be a reasonable default wikistyle so we could use

%code% [@
Bla bla

Is that any more author-friendly than

-> [@
Yadda yadda

though?  In one way it is.  An author can more easily add additional
style attributes to the wikistyle version.  (Otherwise it
double-applies the wikistyle.)
