Hi Brahmanathswami,

Can you give an example of a JS script you'd like to run? What are you 
using to run it? LateNight Software's file extension perhaps?

Perhaps you need to write a JS function to escape characters. What do 
you expect to see instead of the asterisk and percent sign? The same 
escaped by a backslash or something else?
