HTML Character Codes?

Is it possible to use character codes in dynalist? For example: I want to use @ instead of @, so the following text doesn’t turn into a tag. I’d rather not display it as code to keep from creating a tag. I thought I read somewhere that we could use character codes, but it’s not working. Am I missing something?

I don’t think Dynalist allows inserting HTML characters, unfortunately.

If @ has a space before it or is the start of an item, and is not followed by a number, it will always render as a tag.
