Code fence

Code fences are sections of a markdown document where some parsers treat the text within them as verbatim. Usually the purpose of these sections is to display source code. Some programming languages use the character # as a way to comment a line in the code. For this reason md-toc needs to ignore code fences in order not to treat the # character as an ATX-style heading and thus get parsed as an element of the TOC.
