This is a very bad idea, and you are obviously about tu reproduce the
errors of the past.

You need to change your design. You obviously have free-form text, with
possibly some rigid syntax but not enough for your needs. Therefore, you
cannot use a delimiter inside the text. You have to put your structure
outside the text.

It is very typical of the "problems" people have with UTF-8: the problem
resides not in the properties of UTF-8 but in the unwritten assumptions
about the way they should be implementing things.
