Escaping special characters in parse task with transport text? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm using the parse task with transport text AppleScript method; i.e., passing in:

-- Title 1 > Foo @  Bar
-- Title 2 > Foo @ Bar
Notes 2
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:

-- Cannot process amounts >=$2.00 > Foo @ Bar
This is a note
This is still part of the above note.
Escaping of the ticket titles is more important to me than the notes, since I can always use the single task option.

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