Escaping special characters in parse task with transport text?
 
I'm using the [FONT="Courier New"]parse task with transport text[/FONT] AppleScript method; i.e., passing in:

[CODE]
-- Title 1 > Foo @ Bar
Notes
-- Title 2 > Foo @ Bar
Notes 2
[/CODE]

Is it possible to escape special characters that might appear in either the Message Title or in Notes, short of just stripping them out altogether? For example, how could one do:

[CODE]
-- Cannot process amounts >=$2.00 > Foo @ Bar
This is a note
--
This is still part of the above note.
[/CODE]

Escaping of the ticket titles is more important to me than the notes, since I can always use the [FONT="Courier New"]single task[/FONT] option.

I suppose I can directly create new inbox tasks... but parse text is quite handy.
