Paul,

Have you tried to apply the "verbatim" or literal format to the block of text?

Whenever you need to paste text that shouldn't be parsed by Zim,
select the text block and press Ctrl-T (or from the menú, Format ->
Verbatim).

More info here:  http://zim-wiki.org/manual/Help/Wiki_Syntax.html
(look for the Markup section, and then the notes about the verbatim or
literal text blocks).

Hope that helps!
