( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

But if the template code expands into "Hello Fred's World" then you'll get a syntax error as the apostrophe in Fred's is interpreted as the end of the string.

Ah, uhm, I don't think so. 'field' is a string literal not an interpolated variable.....Anyway here is some code that proves the point and shows you how to do s/this/that/g in javascript

<script> var problem = "O'dear"; document.write( 'problem' + "<br>\n" ); problem = problem.replace( /'/g, "\\'" ); document.write( 'still' + ' no ' + problem ); </script> __DATA__ problem<BR> still no O\'dear

Now I just have to log off, log on as my alter ego and downvote myself for contaminating the hallowed ground of PM.....It was only 4 lines. Hopefully the gods will be kind.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
