with issues of \ in general but especially in lists

Standard

Formatting with leading spaces (not possible in lists)

 sed -i "/nemo\\\devicelock\\\maximum_attempts=/c\nemo\\\devicelock\\\maximum_attempts=-1" /mnt/usr/share/lipstick/devicelock/devicelock_settings.conf

Formatting with ` sed -i "/nemo\\\devicelock\\\maximum_attempts=/c\nemo\\\devicelock\\\maximum_attempts=-1" /mnt/usr/share/lipstick/devicelock/devicelock_settings.conf

Formatting with <code> sed -i "/nemo\\devicelock\\maximum_attempts=/c\nemo\\devicelock\\maximum_attempts=-1" /mnt/usr/share/lipstick/devicelock/devicelock_settings.conf

Formatting with <pre><code>

sed -i "/nemo\\\devicelock\\\maximum_attempts=/c\nemo\\\devicelock\\\maximum_attempts=-1" /mnt/usr/share/lipstick/devicelock/devicelock_settings.conf

List items

You can put indented code block in list item but it needs to be indented twice, i.e. 8 spaces

  1. like this

    1. list
    
            code goes here \\\
    
  2. and the list continues

It is a bit cumbersome, but that's how it is in the markdown spec.

The inline code looks bad because it is not meant for very long lines, I'll see if that could be improved somehow. And the code blocks probably should not wrap the content and instead provide a scrolbar if it does not fit.

so "2nd P + code-indent", ok still <code> wraps changes \\\ to \\
