I need to use characters like "plus minus" or "lambda" symbols, and I would normally use ± and λ, but those key references simply display like that, and not encoded as the characters. 

Does anyone know how I can get these types of characters into a template?  I'll be populating the template from JSON data.

Thanks,

King Wilder

Hello King,

 You need to use #= # instead of #: # in such cases. More info can be found in the Kendo Templates documentation.

Atanas,

Yup that worked!

I was using:
<div class="optics-description">${description}</div>
What are the differences between the two options, ${...} adn #= ... # and when do I use one over the other?

Thanks,

King Wilder

Hi,

 The differences are explained in the linked help topic. The ${} is the same as #: #.

Atanas,

I read the documentation twice and didn't see a reference to the ${...} syntax.  Am I blind or is it not there?

Thanks,

Hello King,

The ${} is a deprecated template syntax - that is why it is not mentioned in the documentation.

Petyo,

Ah, ok I understand.  I'll remember to use #= # or #: # from now on.

Thanks,
