It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):

Hi @Bastian_Orth!

That’s interesting. I’ll share this with our engineering team to get their thoughts, but in the interim you can use the hexadecimal code to ensure syntax highlighting functions as desired.

{{15.5 + "\u20AC" }}


I hope this helps for now. Happy building!

As @Ludwig said, just convert it into “Unicode escape sequence” i usually doing it with ChatGPT. All special characters should be treated same way with n8n expression. including Emojis.


Thanks for the hints.
