Tree Plugin samples imply that I should be able to usebackslases to protect double quotes from TREE. That is, this should work:

%TREEVIEW{topic="VbrownBagelry" formatting="outline" format="$topic <br /> $percntTOC{\"$topic\"}$percnt  <br />" }%

But instead, the backslashes are eaten or ignored, so TREE thinks the format is closed at the " before $topic.

Results look like

%TOC{ VbrownTestCalendar
%TOC{ VbrownTestEventSearch
%TOC{ VbrownTests

I should see
