Hi all,

In the following snippets, I have marked which bits are syntax-highlighted as 
code, and which bits are exported as code.

                 Some “=code=” [fn:: ~more~ ~of it~]. ~even more code~— ~this~ 
   Highlighted?        No            Yes    No       No                No
   Exported?           No            Yes    Yes      No                No

Note the inconsistency in the footnote case.  ~this~ isn't highlighted because 
it's surrounded by non-breaking space.  ~of it~ isn't highlighted because of 
the ‘]’, but on export it does get rendered as code.

Some suggestions: Paired delimiters and quotes, such as “” ‘’ <> [], could be 
allowed around code (by changing the default for 
‘org-emphasis-regexp-components’).  Spaces (including zero-width spaces) could 
also be allowed: this would provide a universal mechanism for ensuring that a 
bit of code is highlighted. For example, “There are many ~let~s in this code” 
wouldn't work, but “There are many ~let~​s in this code” would work fine.
