But, how do I use my new tiddler [[tiddlerToShow]]? I need to be able to do <$link to={{tiddlerToShow}}>{{tiddlerToShow}}</$link> and <$transclude tiddler={{tiddlerToShow}}/>? There must be a magic text cleaning machine that interprets the slashes for what they are, and not as markup...?
<$link to={{tiddlerToShow}}><$text text={{tiddlerToShow}}/></$link>

The "to" param of the <$link> widget is not *rendered*... thus, the "//" contained in the value is used as-is, and the <$text> widget within the link displays the tiddler title, with the "//" intact, as previously noted.
Likewise, with <$transclude tiddler={{tiddlerToShow}}/>, the "tiddler" param is not *rendered*... and the "//" is used as-is.
