#29515 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Escape/encode some HTML tags used in core docblocks

In some function references, such as get_media_embedded_in_content we reference specific HTML tags like <video>, <audio>, <embed>, <iframe>, or others.

And since markdown backslash escaping doesn't apply to greater- and less-than characters, we may need to encode them directly in the docblocks so they can be properly parsed for the Code Reference.

The other obvious choice may be to run esc_html() on the parser side before it goes through markdown parsing. We'll have to figure out what works best across the board.
