Yes, exactly. Other than the line-leading indentation for code
blocks, and the delimiting backticks for code spans.
Where by "literal", however, I mean that it's what you *want*, not
literally what you wrote. &'s and <'s are still entity-encoded
automatically -- but that's the whole reason Markdown's code blocks
and spans are so cool.
