Get raw version of file


I am using Atlassian Bitbucket v7.8.0 and I am trying to get the raw version of a file, specifically an .adoc, which I want to include in another adoc.

To get the raw version I am using links of the sort:


 which gives me the master version of the file,



which gives me the version for the branch called somebranch.

These links give me the adoc content, all is fine.

Including such links in the .adoc results in some weird html code being injected instead of the real adoc content.

Doing the same, but this time using works just fine.

When I inspect the html of these links (, bitbucketserver) I see the same html structure. 

My question is: what is the approved way of fetching the raw content of a file for the 7.8.0 version of bitbucket server?
