You assumed correctly, it just happened that in this case there was an
overlap: the shell scripting correction did not answer the
formatting question so much as cancelled it.

Yes, that's the place I'd expect some mention of typographic
conventions. The <code> and <file> blocks are very good to denote file
contents or fragments, but not so good in denoting console input and
output. Other conventions may clarify if the specially formatted text
is a command, a path, a command option, a variable of some kind, etc.

Thanks, my pleasure. BTW, I was under the misapprehension that the
articles would appear to the public after some editorial review, but in
this case it didn't happen.
