Summary0002049: Bug or feature? Properties get evaluated in Desc*.txt?
DescriptionIf you write a localized string that contains a property, such as:

local Description="$Description"

and have DescUS.txt:

Description=This is a "".

then the engine tries to evaluate the "" as a property of the object. This results in an engine error:

ERROR: '}' or ',' expected, but found identifier (.../Script.c:<line nr>:<closing ">)

Or is it the "-character that needs to be escaped?

I think that this was actually an unrelated error and wrong interpretation of the error message by me.
