What is the markup format used for DevZone posts?

What is the markup format used for formatting DevZone posts?

In particular I couldn't determine how to format inline monospaced text.  The editor used to enter this message has a different set of editor actions allowing the format to be changed (eg. Set a default font), but this is not available in the editor used for normal DevZone questions.

It would be nice to add a 'help' popup in the post editor which lists markup options so that users could better format their posts.
