I suspect that without the escapes, the variable won't have the right
definition, since quotes are used to contain the value ... although it's
possible that *with* the escapes, it won't have the right definition either.

It's starting to sound like I need to write a script so that no special
characters are required.  An ugly hack, but I think it will work ... so
I will go ahead and do that.

A better option might be to create a feature where we can define a list
of characters that should be stripped out of email text before it is
sent, and have Xymon itself handle that.
