JSON Objects w/ Leading "." In Key Title

I'm using DropBox's API to pull files into FileMaker and have run into an interesting issue. When getting the contents of a folder the API returns an array of contents. Each array object has various key/value pairs and one is has the key of ".tag". This causes problems when using JSONGetElement because the "." is interpreted as asking to go down a level deeper into the selected array object. Has anyone else run into this or know of a way to escape the "." so it is interpreted as part of the ".tag" key?
