Unicode + Escape Character = IE Unterminated string constant error!

Let's say I have a string:

div.innerHTML = "<a onclick='foo(\" "+myWord+"\");' ></a>";

in IE only (tested version 7) if var myWord = "English" then it works
fine
but if var myWord = "Modifier Cha\u00EEnes" then I get "Unterminat ed
string constant" error.

What fix would you suggest to keep div.innerHTML = "" format?
Thanks.

I am trying to make a bunch of unicode constant strings. I am trying the following without success. Below is an example. Bad means that I get the following error "unclosed string literal". Is this due to the fact that 22hex is the ascii 34 double quote character? If so how do i work around? Note: They are not for display, they are for commands to be sent to a server. protected final static String CD0 = "", //OK

i want to try ANSI C99's unicode fuctions. so i write a test program. the function is simple, but i cannot compile it with dev c++ 4.9.9.2 under windows xp sp2, since the compiler always think that the initialization of the wchar_t string is illegal. here is my function: #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <wchar.h> #include <wctype.h> #include <string.h>

I'm having a problem (Python 2.4) converting strings with random 8-bit characters into an escape form which is 7-bit clean for storage in a database.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.
