If you know about how to use escape character, I think it should be very easy for you to help me.
I need to parse string variable within single quotes like this:

var iParseThisString = "Hello";
document.write ("<table><tr><td onclick='myFunction(1,"+iParseThisString+")'>Link</td></tr></table>");

THE PROBLEM IS: iParseThisString as a string cannot be parsed.
Error is "Hello is not defined"
Character \ must be used, but how?..................

I would go with:

document.write ("<table><tr><td onclick=\"myFunction(1,'"+iParseThisString+"')\">Link</td></tr></table>");

Unfortunately, that did not work for me.
To be more precise, this is my code:

var iParseThisString = "Hello";
var iParseThisNum = 553;

array("<table><tr><td onclick='myFunction("+iParseThisNum+","+iParseThisString+",1)'>Link</td></tr></table>");

Note: iParseThisNum works well because it is a number, but iParseThisString does not
Thank you for your help.

Also, it works well if I write the string as it is without variable:

array("<table><tr><td onclick='myFunction("+iParseThisNum+",\"Hello\",1)'>Link</td></tr></table>");

But how to make that "Hello" be a string variable instead?
