In Texter's script mode, the ! character is used to denote the Alt key.

I want the script to actually type a ! character -- how can I escape this so it will work?

In the text mode (not script mode) it works, of course, but I want to use it in combination with Tab and Enter keystrokes.

According to the old Texter page on Lifehacker you just wrap the special characters in curly brackets to escape them.
