Origin: lgc. Landing-place: terminal.

An escape sequence comprises two or more double quote characters followed by one character which is not a double quote. The 'Unknown escape in body' error message indicates that lgc found an escape sequence which was inside the body but not inside a string and which did not make sense in that context. The escape sequences which make sense in this context are:

"   Start of string (until double quote or "".)
""- Start of string (until double quote or "".)
""; Start of short comment (until end of line)
""{ Start of long comment (until ""})
""# Binary include as string (until double quote or "".)
""$ Text include as string (until double quote or "".)
""P Page name (until end of line or ""n)
""R Reference (until end of line or ""n)
""D Definition (until ""P, ""R, ""D or ""B)
""B Ignored (means: begin or continue body)
"". The empty string (self-terminated)
""S Page source as a string (self-terminated)
""N Name definitions (self-terminated)
""C Charge definitions (self-terminated)

Sometimes errors of this kind are difficult to locate because the error could be a missing or extra single double quote somewhere else which makes lgc think that the given escape sequence appears outside a string while the user intended it to be inside a string. In case of real trouble with this, use ""- to start strings and "". to end strings instead of using single double quotes for that.
