I've noticed that when the little help box appears to the side, it says to show code using "backticks" when they are called graves. For clarification, I am talking about these: `. I don't think that these should be called backticks.
Both names, "grave (accent)" and "backtick" apply to the same character.
"grave" is more common in the linguistic field and when it's actually combined with a letter (like "è").
"backtick" is the name commonly used in technical or programming contexts, where it is used on its own like a quotation mark instead. Just like here in the Markdown editor, where you enclose text with `backticks` to
format it as code.
