If you use a clip to retrieve the text in a clip or an outline topic,
and assign that text to a variable, that's when it is subject to
being misinterpreted. The content of the text could even mess up the
text of topic of is:
Your clip comes along captures it with:
What do you suppose ^!Info ^%TopicText% will show?
Setcode does a better job, but remember that ^%TopicText% will be
subjected to interpretation in every subsequent clip command or
function that uses it.
