------- Additional Comments From gudnabrsam@yahoo.com  2005-04-19 23:14 -------
Because $ is a special character used for property expansion in Ant, $$ is
treated as an escape sequence for $ .  A single $ not followed by a brace is
treated as a single $ for reasons of backward compatibility.  Your problem
should be fixed by specifying $$ as $$$$ .  I will mark this as a documentation
issue.
