Yes it should.

and the Java code to append the \ is:

This is part of what makes this so tricky to get right. The quoting
rules vary between Java, JSPs and EL. A number of the initial failures
with my tests were because I had quoted stuff incorrectly in the test case.

The good news is that one of my test cases was failing because of
exactly this error. As you'll see which my next commit (hopefully later
today) things are a lot easier to test and there are a lot more test
cases. In fact the majority of the changes will be test cases rather
than changes to Jasper/EL.
