But also for escaping the semicolon character, I prefer not to have to say to customers you can't use a semicolon in any of the text for shape data lists, because the underlying software can't properly escape the semicolon character.

Not sure how you've implemented this, but a copy/paste text string, with semi's, into the prop.format cell works fine.  Can be done manually or with code.
