How-to get visible double "double quotes"?

Hi,

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,

Björn

Hello,

It's not possible yet, but we will implement the tile ~ as escape as described here:

Thanks for the suggestion!

In the following beta: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

We have enabled this:

@startuml
start
:foo1;
note left
  ""foo2""
  ~""foo3""
endnote
@enduml


Hopes it helps!
This will be available in next release.
