JSONSetElement/Insert From URL not properly escaping characters.

JSONSetElement does not escape " " or "¶" properly in value text and a number of web services (a few big ones) reject it as malformed JSON when submitted via Insert From URL using cURL. Other characters seem to escape fine.

Expected: Would expect the functions to properly escape JSON in the standard way.

 

Workaround: Use Substitute to escape JSON properly.
