Bug Description

The colour red has different connotations, it can be (in North America) associated with danger, error, warning. We shouldn't use red to highlight terms -- anything that is marked up with `` (double backticks) [1].

There was a short email discussion about this, no one mentioned that they wanted the red [2].

I think a monospace font, bolded, would be sufficient. I don't think we need it to be a different colour from the surrounding text.

    No red with double backticks markup

    The double backticks (``) markup caused text to be displayed in
    red with a pinkish background colour. The text is now displayed
    in black and bold, the same size as the surrounding text.
