In normal text
Produces a grave accent on the following character.
In the tabbing environment
The \` command allows you to put text flushed right against any tab
stop, including tab stop 0. However, it can't move text to the right
of the last column because there's no tab stop there. The \` command
moves all the text that follows it, up to the
command that ends the line, to the right margin of the tabbing
environment. There must be no
\' command between the \` and the
command that ends the line.
