Formatting Tokens

TWiki defines some standard special tokens that can be used to replace characters in some parameters - notably those to FormattedSearch and IfStatements - to defer evaluation of the parameter until later. These special tokens are often called "escapes", because they allow the character to "escape" from its normal meaning.

Line: 8 to 8
 
$quot Double quote (") (\" also works)
$percnt Percent sign (%)
$dollar Dollar sign ($)
Added:
>
>
$lt Less than sign (<)
$gt Greater than sign (>)
 

If you ever find yourself needing to escape an escape, you can use $dollar to escape the leading dollar, thus: $dollarpercnt.
