I'm using a keyword substitution in my files that I'm developing. 
Problem is that the program that uses my files has already $ dollar sign 
reserved for variables and always waits for a variable name after $. So 
when I have keyword $Log$ it brings a lot of error messages saying that 
Log is not a variable and it was no variable found after second $ sign. 
I can avoid it by adding "\" before the $ sign but that works only for 
first substitution. After that the second "\" was replaced and exists 
not anymore.

Is there a workaround ?
Thanks for every help.
