It depends on whether the menu button displays a "system" menu (like the
popup and option menus do by default) or whether it displays an "internal"
menu (like the pulldown menus do by default).

If it's a system menu (you can tell because you can't change the font specs
of the menu), you escape a slash (and an open parentheses, btw) with a
backslash, as in "Start\/Stop".

If it's an internal menu (you can tell because you *can* change the font
specs of the menu), you escape a slash with another slash, as in
"Start//Stop".
