15.3 Escape Character

You may sometimes want to write text that looks like Org syntax, but should really read as plain text. Org may use a specific escape character in some situations, e.g., a backslash in macros (see Macro Replacement). In the general case, however, we suggest to use the zero width space. You can get it with one of the following:

C-x 8 <RET> zero width space <RET>
C-x 8 <RET> 200B <RET>

For example, in order to write ‘[[1,2]]’ as-is in your document, you can write this, where ‘X’ denotes the zero width space character:

[[X1,2]]
