Quotation problems in markdown
Hi everyone! I try to be helpful when I can and answer questions. In the past few days, I've noticed that sometimes when I answer a question and put the code in the markdown, my quotation marks have been getting converted to """ in the markdown. I haven't changed anything. I'm using the same browser and the same keyboard/settings etc. What am I missing here?
Note: This doesn't happen with every answer I post... just occasionally. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I looked at one instance when this happened to you, and found that you accidentally put a ` sign at the end of a sentence, perhaps because it's right next to the enter key. I removed it from one of your posts and the quotation marks showed up correctly. Since three ` signs are what creates the formatting Treehouse use, it's likely that it could cause problems to use that sign.

I also noticed this change about a month ago. It started occurring after one of Treehouse's bigger updates. I've tried a few things, but so far, the only way I've found around this is to either not use Markdown when I need quotes or use an actual code block (The 3 backtick one). Hopefully the Devs will revert back to how it was...
