Putting large objects into Fixtures

Hello all,
I’ve come across several suggestions that indicate that I should use
fixtures to load a predefined set of data into my database for testing.
My thought was that if I could use such a setup for creating predefined
test data, what would stop me from using it to create the initial data
that would be loaded when the site goes live?

So, I have several tables in the database that have large text fields.
How would I go about putting these into YAML when they might possibly
contain syntax that would screw up the parsing of the YAML file? Any
idea how to do this? Is there a rake task for it (probably)? Should I do
it this way?

Will
