--- Comment #2 from Jesse Glick <> ---
Or more precisely, _a_ correct format. In this case it is not necessary to emit
the backslashes. It is just simpler to escape all occurrences of certain
characters, rather than determining in each case whether it might be
interpreted as a metacharacter in input. Other implementations such as
may choose to be more sparing with escape characters so as to maximize human
readability, so long as Properties.load still recognizes the result. At any
rate, any tool dealing with *.properties files must follow the standard syntax.
