I am using prismjs for code block formatting and expected that when I typed out an example bit of liquid code it would be rendered appropriately.

However writing this in my markdown file

```liquid
{{site.tags | inspect}}
```

results in this lot appearing in my blog post:

Turns out you can escape liquid code expansion by using raw and endraw but styled like this:

raw and endraw

Incidentally I also learned that you can escape fenced codeblocks in markdown with ~~~ which I used to demonstrate the first code block in this post:

markdown escape

Trying to escape an escape seems to be nightmare that I couldn’t resolve so I’ve had to abandon in favour of screenshots.
