I can't seem to find an answer on this ... how to I embed a hex value in a string? For example, I have the string "<%text" and I want [sic] "<\x25text" where \x25 would be my hex escape sequence ... except that doesn't work. What does?

You can't do hex escapes in string literals (only in character literals). However, you can use either octal escapes or unicode escapes. Therefore your strings would be either..

Octal: "<\045text"

or

Unicode: "<\u0025text"
