Yes, that's correct. The ''' is considered valid wiki syntax so it disappears on the page. The code section should be wrapped in some formatter to prevent this and any other markup changes. Or at least a warning should be added. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 16:53, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

The "magic markup" to show an entire program verbatim is typically <pre><nowiki> at the start, and </nowiki></pre> at the end. This will show almost every possible special character as-is. Ais523 (talk) 14:46, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
