Thanks for the information. I think i might turn off icon transformation, I 
didn’t realize that was an option.
After further investigation my issue with escaping appears to be related to 
using CKEditor. When I use the WYSIWYG or WIKI editor it seems to work every 
time but the CKEditor gave mixed results when I tested using version 1.3. After 
updating to version 1.4 I am having trouble reasonably reproducing the error. 
Thanks again for your help!
