No - His method will work, although I'm not sure why he's not able to find
it in the DB.  I'd set it to something a little easier to reproduce...You
may be mistyping the property value.

If you can't get this to work, you could (As an alternative) get a builtin
that has an ASCII function that will return the ESC char (If you pass it a
27).  And no, I don't know where you can get this :)
