Quotes in Strings

Question: How do I insert quotes in strings?

Answer: Quotes in strings should be preceded by a backslash. This allows the JavaScript interpreter to distinguish a quote within the string from the quotes that serve as string delimiters. Here's an example:

string1='It\'s five o\'clock!';
string2="<A HREF=\"index.htm\">";
Alternatively, if your string includes single quotes only, then you can use double quotes as string delimiters, and vice versa. Here's an example:
string1="It's five o'clock!";
string2='<A HREF="index.htm">'; Copyright © 1999-2006, Alexei Kourbatov
