You have the right syntax.  The [=...=] business is just the way it was
documented in source.  (Someone wanted a single-quote followed by some
italics text.  Since 2 single quotes make the italics the 3rd would have
made bold instead of putting a quote in there -- putting the quote inside
[='=] makes it do what is desired in the documentation.)

Note that in general when you copy/paste code you should copy from the
displayed text (?action=browse) rather than from the ?action=source or
?action=edit view.  Typically (?) authors try to make the ?action=browse
text appear as what should actually become your code.
