Backslash characters exported from Outlook calendar into ics format cannot be imported into Thunderbird Lightning. In addition, the first character after the backslash along with the backslash is converted into a space. Possible solution: using \\ instead of single \ character (by editing the ics file) fixed the problem; during the subsequent attempt to import, backslashes were imported properly into Thunderbird Lightning.
