This change replaces the HTML code tag with the equivalent javadoc tag 
in the java.base module as such:

<code>foo</code> becomes {@code foo}

Ignored are any code tags that enclose other HTML or javadoc tags or 
that contain HTML entities, e.g. character codes.

Examples (after change):


51 * ignored.  The comment character is {@code '#'} 
(<code>'\u0023'</code>); on


625 * <code>new File(this.{@link #getCanonicalPath})</code>.

I reviewed the change with specdiff and doccheck on the java.base 
module, neither flagged any differences or errors. I also reviewed the 
javadoc of some classes manually but did not do an extensive manual review.
