# verbatim vertical bar in org table

I am trying to have a vertical bar inside a verbatim environment as part of an org-mode table. Following https://orgmode.org/manual/Built_002din-table-editor.html#FOOT20 I have tried this:

``````| =find -name "*Lafontaine*" \vert xargs okular &= | finds files |
``````

where `\vert` is meant to be the pipe character. Yet, not surprisingly, `\vert` is output verbatim, and not as "|" as intended.

How can I get this work please?
