I'm trying to create an org page that contains a list of instructions, some of 
this include code and/or URLs. I'm having a dickens of a time trying to get 
this to format correctly,
and the documentation isn't much help. For example:

 - I want to have a numbered list with some of the steps being or containing 
code, in monospaced text:

     7) =something "abc"=

   However, the second quote seems to prevent the =...= notation from being 
recognized.

 - I want a URL that does NOT get converted to a link, and in which I can place 
italics to indicate that parts of the sample URL should be replaced with other 
text:
   http://localhost:<port number>/path/to/file/file.html
   In this case, "port number" and probably "/path/to/file/" should be 
italicized.

 - Of course, combining these, I get situations like:
   =var str1 = "<replace me> some other text."=
   Embedded equal signs, quotation marks and emphasized text make this a 
nightmare.

Can this be done, or is this just more complicated than org was designed to 
handle? I can, of course, edit the exported files, but that's pretty limiting.

Thanks,
-pd
