Issue: Markdown Code Block Escaping Problem in Cursor Chat


When working with markdown files containing code blocks that use three backticks followed by a language specification, the cursor chat output fails to escape and render the code properly. This issue occurs when the code block itself contains backticks.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an empty markdown file with the following content:

    Some random text
        export KUBECONFIG=<path_to_kubeconfig>
        export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=<aws_access_key_id>
        export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=<aws_secret_access_key>
  2. Select all and add to chat with Command + L and ask cursor to rephrase the random text.

Expected Behavior

The nested code block should be properly escaped and rendered within the markdown. So that it is readable and in a copy-friendly format.

Actual Behavior

The cursor chat output fails to escape the backticks in the nested code block, resulting in improper rendering.
