Highlight code lines in bitbucket markdown

in my .md documents, I use code blocks in the form of

public class xy {

this works. Now I want to highlight line 1 of this code snippet. As per http://pythonhosted.org/Markdown/extensions/code_hilite.html, this should work using the "hl_lines" parameter, which would result in

:::csharp hl_lines="1"
public class xy {

But this does not work. Is there any way to highlight a line of code?

you've probably already worked it out by now... but use triple-backticks instead of the triple colon

see "code blocks" here:
