Problem: The content management system I’m using takes any URL it recognizes and changes it into a link. That’s normally good EXCEPT if you want to create a fake URL as an example.
Solution: Replace the slash with its numeric entity code (/). Voilà – the system can’t find the slashes anymore, so leaves the URL alone.
By the way, the entity code hack looks like this

Even ASCII characters sometimes need an entity code.
