    Marked's renderer currently expects a language specifier after the
    backticks to be a string of characters with no spaces, so the filename
    after the language breaks it. Changing "json modules.json" to "json"
    will allow proper rendering.

    This is something I'm already working on fixing, so it's just a
    temporary workaround.
