Hmm, indeed. I'll let a copy/pasted segment out of templates-revisited.dd speak for itself:

template<class T, class U> class Bar { ... };

template<class T, class U> T foo(T t, U u) { ... }

template<class T, class U> static T abc;

Indeed, can't the compiler just replace every <>& with $(LT) $(GT) $(AMP) and the template would decide what to translate them to?

Looks like ddoc does support escapes:

Right, but it is only used in code blocks, not plain text/macros. (I've tried to change that in the past too, but "embedded html" is a feature not a bug.)

The --- code --- and the `code` both use ddoc's existing escape system. I'm saying ```code``` ought to use it too and THAT is reason for it to exist. It is more than just syntax - it does something macros cannot do.

Mildly +1 from me too. Seems a little better to make it work as expected most of the time than to reduce the number of ways to do the same thing.
