 Replying to [comment:5 stringfold]:
 > I agree that this is a problem that needs fixing. (Was a real pain for
 me until I found a workaround).  I would favor the [[ shortcode ]] format
 and not those tick marks (unless WP starts using them elsewhere).
 > I wrote a workaround for my plugin (AZIndex).  I simply added another
 parameter to my shortcode '''escape="true"''' for when I wanted to display
 the shortcode unmodified (in plugin documentation, for example).
 > But it would be nice to see this fixed in the next release.

 Oops -- [[  ]] is the escape format I favor.
