Reserved characters

This section lists characters that are reserved for specific purposes.

RTF uses curly braces ’ {’ and ’ }’ as group delimiters. They must occur in pairs and may be nested. To display curly braces in text strings, use ’ \{’ and ’ \}', respectively.


You must URL-encode all curly braces used in RTF.

Back slashes ‘’ are used to introduce RTF commands and keywords. To display a backslash, use '\\'.
