You can always use a Scheme string escape:


But another option is the laternative syntax for the open/close


Using |{ to open the body means that only }| will be recognized as
closing the body, and commands inside should start with |@.  If that's
not enough, you can add stuff between the | and {.  For example, the
scribble syntax documentation (collects/scribblings/scribble/
reader.scrbl) has things like this:

  @foo{bar baz
  @foo{bar @baz[3]
  @foo{bar @baz{3}
  @foo{bar @baz[2 3]{4 5}

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
