Thanks a lot. That's right. Modifying InsetLayout Marginal located in the file indeed controls the presence or absence of "\protect".

The reason I want to get rid of it is because that without the protect, the 
exported tex file looks more the way I would have typed in a text editor 
outside of LyX.

From the TeX point of view, is there really a reason for the protect in this
