Q. I have a string with special characters that is causing problems when I try to use in JSON, how can I fix this?

A. Certain characters need to be "escaped" when used as part of JSON, like an ampersand (&). You can manually escape these characters, buta better route is to use the ConvertTo-Json cmdlet. That will output an escaped string of any passed string that can be used as part of a JSON file.
