Escaping Markdown tag characters (@,#)


I sometimes write lines where I use the @ and # characters, but don’t want them to be treated as tags.

To prevent tags from being created, it’d be useful if we could escape the @ and # characters, like it’s currently being done for other Markdown formatting symbols. Right now, when I use the \, it doesn’t create the tag, but adds visual pollution to the entry.


I also encounter this issue exactly! A feature that recognizes escape sequences of the form “\#” and hides the escape character (resulting in “#”) would be great.
