How can display something verbatim on a bullet line?

For example, here's some markup:

* {{<your name>/blah/}}

This gets displayed mono-spaced but it also gets converted into a URL instead of being displayed verbatim which is what I want. But how?

This is probably going to seem heroic, but it works (so you gotta vote for it :-):

* {{&#104;ttp://}}

This uses a literal html "h" as the first character of the URL, which blocks Confluence seeing it as a URL.

Is there a reason you don't want it to be a hyperlink?

@Kevin Buchs: That's a neat trick :)

Here's another solution: Use the "no link" macro:

* {nolink:}

Or this:

* {nl:}
