Re: [vox-tech] latex help: fancyverb

found the answer.  turned out to be pretty simple.

first, i tried:




to produce a '{', the character gets ignored.  it doens't produce an
error (i'm surprised that \char173 isn't an error), but no '{' is

next, out of desperation, i tried:




but that produced errors.  i wasn't expecting them to work anyhow.


does the trick.  that teaches me to try the harder solutions first!  ;)
