# Comma in macro parameters

I have a macro accepting several optional arguments in a comma separated list. I would like to assign a value containing a comma to a particular argument. Is there a way to "escape" this particular comma so that it will not be interpreted as the beginning of a new argument.

Here is an except of what I would like to achieve:

\begin{mymacro}[arg1=a,b,arg2=c]
% ...
\end{mymacro}


I would like to set arg1 to a,b and not, of course, seeing this interpreted as "arg1=a and b".

Thanks!

From the xkeyval package documentation (p 9): "When you want to use commas or equality signs in the value of a key, surround the value by braces, as shown in the example: \setkeys[my]{familya}{keya={some=text,other=text}}" –  Werner Sep 10 '12 at 17:27
