      Thanks. Please try it now.

      And by the way, in case anyone has been reading this thread,

      function quote(s) {
      return '"' + s + '"';
      }

      is a dangerously insecure function. It should be removing or entityifying all '"' and '\\' in s before concatenating.

      Works, thanks! And yes, don’t ever use that function or anything like it. It was a bad example. /Jakob Fra: jslint_com@yahoogroups.com
