Hi all,

I need to insert bits of plain text into a final composite Org document. The
text should be protected from any Org formatting (for example, "* " at the
beginning of a line should not be interpreted as a headline). Is enclosing
it with #+BEGIN_SRC/#+END_SRC or #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE/#+END_EXAMPLE the correct
way? I'm thinking yes, but my Emacs still interprets the "* " as headline
though.

This seems to work - I can export to html or latex and get the expected result:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

* foo
org example

#+begin_example
,* bar
<2011-06-16 Thu>

This is example code.

#+end_example
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But I don't know all the rules and moreover I don't know of any place where
they are described. I'll look around and post an update when I find it.
But feel free to beat me to it.

Nick

Section 11.3, "Literal Examples", of the Org manual
(info "(org)Literal Examples")

footnote 4.

Btw, I still need to escape "#+END_SRC" if they occur at the start of line
in text, for example by prepending it with a space (akin to prepending a
space to "From " in mbox format).

Try the round-trip suggested in sec. 11.3, "Literal examples", of the
manual: C-c ' on the block, then C-c ' to go back.  Here is the example
that I used in a recent bug report[fn:1] after round-tripping it:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* foo

#+begin_example
  ,#+TITLE: foo
  ,* One
  
  One
  
  ,* Two
  
  Euler says:
  
  ,#+begin_latex
  \[
  \int_0^\infty e^{-x^2} dx = {{\sqrt{\pi}} \over {2}}
  \]
  ,#+end_latex
#+end_example
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

It indented and added commas in front.[fn:2]

Footnotes:

[fn:1] http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/42546

[fn:2] Unfortunately, it does not fix things: the bug is still biting
       me.  Actually, it's two bugs: one is a generic one, the other is
       specific to latex export.
