When I looked at your post with crontab in it and tried to preview something similar here I coudn't see a problem.
Can you describe the problem you had with the crontab post?
 

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
Try this:
Code:
"15 * * * *" something "*" something else
"15 * * * " something "" something else

...which has been converted to (count the asterisks):
Code:
"15 * * * [I]" something "[/I]" something else

Aha! I see the problem.
In theory it looks as though Markdown should let you escape characters. It doesn't seem to work.
Code:
\*If I understand it correctly, the asterisk should display\*
\If I understand it correctly, the asterisk should display\ but it doesn't and the text gets italicised.
Looks like [plain][/plain] is the only viable solution - unless someone knows better.
