[Abcde-users] How to deal with problematic characters?

Turns out I was being over cautious. I didn't need to escape the apostrophe
at all. abcde took care of it for me. My default editor is emacs and when
abcde opened it to allow me to edit/enter the disc info emacs didn't like
the apostrophe (color highlighting was weird). I escaped it and it made
emacs happy but caused problems for abcde as it removed the apostrophe but
left the slash. If I would've done nothing I would've been fine.
