Escaping special characters

How do I escape special characters, like for instance the @-sign?

I'm creating tasks for a programming project with annotations, like for instance

"Add @RequestMapping to xxx". I'm not looking to turn it into a label.

Hello Poyan,

Unfortunately, you can't "truly" escape them so that you will see @RequestMapping and this will not turn into a label, but if you type .@RequestMapping and don't mind the dot at the front - this will not consider it a label.

Best regards,
