Minor doc fix: HTML escaping of placeholders in "Implementing Backup" blog post

(Sorry I couldn’t find any other way to report this)

In Daniel Harrison’s otherwise excellent blog post at https://www.cockroachlabs.com/blog/implementing-backup/ there seems to be an issue with HTML escaping. For example, there is a sentence which appears like this:

The table schema (which we call a TableDescriptor) is stored at key /DescriptorPrefix/ . Each row in the table is stored at key // .

Looking at the HTML source, I see placeholders like <tableid> and <primarykey> have not been escaped into &lt;tableid&gt; and &lt;primarykey&gt;, so the browser (Chrome in my case) hides them as unrecognised HTML tags. I believe the correct rendering would be:

The table schema (which we call a TableDescriptor) is stored at key /DescriptorPrefix/<tableid> . Each row in the table is stored at key /<tableid>/<primarykey> .

There are other examples:

everything with a prefix of /

each of the keys I mentioned above actually has a timestamp suffix, something like //:

if a given key (say //<4> ) is deleted

Hey Brian,
