I'm not really sure how you want this to be rendered or what this
actually means but if you send me the text in between the " it will
render like this: https://gultsch.de/files/monospace.png which seems

But I meant more like provide an example of (valid) code you would
actually paste in real life not some constructed example to 'break'
the parser.
