Default hold the Javascript!

I'm trying to construct a (web) page to explain how users might make use of a 'lightbox' feature on a Joomla-based website that I'm admin for. Part of the explanation that I'm trying to show requires that the user copies/pastes a piece of text at the top of their own page. The text is

{artprettyphoto /}

Unfortunately, when I include this in my article, Javascript (or JQuery???) thinks the text is there simply for its benefit and swipes it off the page. Result being that I can't show the line of text that I need to...

...I've tried using ascii codes to replace the curly brackets but no joy. So I suppose my question is whether there's a way to create a small Javascript-free zone on the page so that it will leave it where I put it?

Alternatively, am I missing the blindingly obvious??

I hope the above makes some kind of sense - I know what I mean...;-)
