How-to get visible double "double quotes"?

0 votes

I want to use double double quotes ("") in diagrams (sequence diagrams); for example to visualise a list of empty strings ("", "", "", ...).

Unfortunately this is prevented by the Creole formatting engine - it interprets a pair of double double quotes as a section to be formatted monospaced.

As there were several similar problems with Creole, like doubled underscores and similar, I suggest to have some general concept to escape the Creole tags. Or is there already some possibility?

Thanks + regards,

Thanks for the suggestion!
