[wp-hackers] Getting a post through without the HTML escaped?

Hi all,

I thought I'd try posting this question here in case someone knows the
answer already, if not then I will go digging... I currently have a
modified version of phone2wp -
http://ryanduff.net/archives/2004/11/24/phone2wp-01/ working on my WP
blog to moblog from my s710a, which works great but I am now trying to
add a feature where it will include a map of my location using Google
Maps API.

I have that part working perfectly BUT somewhere either in the posting
or the rendering of the post WP escapes the HTML (replaces the double
quotes, adds <br />'s for newlines etc), which of course results in
broken Javascript. So my question is, is there anyway to let a post
through without having the HTML escaped?

FYI if I want to post my location when sending an email from my phone
I start the first line with a colon and then enter the address, then
if phone2wp detects the colon it looks up the address using
http://geocoder.us, then grabs the co-ordinates in order to display
the Google Map (Google's API will only take co-ordinates). As I said
all of that works fine, it is just the HTML escaping that breaks
things so if someone can help me out with that then it would be most
