Wow.  Usually asciidoc is more forgiving than that.  Are there other
pages affected by this too (e.g., "the commit HEAD^" in

Does using {caret} for ^ work, too?  Generally in asciidoc using a
backslash to escape delimiter characters leads to trouble when the
number of delimiters changes or the text is copy+pasted, since in a
context where the backslash is unneeded it ends up being rendered as a
literal backslash.

Alternatively, does "`^{type}`" work?
