Markdown formatting breaks user tagging with special characters
This was shared by @email@example.com. When posting in markdown format if you attempt to tag/link another user and they have special characters in the name if it is interpreted as formatting characters it may break linking.
Possible new glitch (or things working too well): At the www interface, I’ve set MarkDown as the default formatting style for all posts. This way, I can post formatted text from Tusky, Toot, or any other client.
It happens, though, that handles containing special characters get interpreted as to be formated. Ex.: @firstname.lastname@example.org
Should this be happening? Should I just be scaping the characters myself?
Test: @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org
