joe's sh syntax highlighting doesn't recognize $(cmd) which is the same as
`cmd` (command substition) but I prefer it for two reasons:
- can be easily nested
- easier to type or paste to joe as doesn't have that ` escape char.

Ouch, I vaguelly remember having this problem 9 years ago. But since then
I completely forgot that it is impossible to copy-paste any text into joe
containing ` char, because I just replaced one line in my config then:
quote ` Enter Ctrl chars
quote ^[ ` Enter Ctrl chars, Esc-`
You don't really need to suffer from the bad defaults. :-))
