Subject: Reading properties

hi all,

One of my property file has key/values such as


When I read this property like

<property file="${build_dir}/" />

ant throws an exception, C:\mydir\build.xml:35:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Malformed \uxxxx encoding. 

I understand that it interprets \u in usb as unicode char. how to over come

I tried to use a filter to change "\" to "\\"

<filter token="\" value="\\"/>
<copy file="${build_dir}/" filtering="true"
tofile="${build_dir}/" overwrite="true"> </copy>

It does not seem to work. What could be the problem ?
