PHP outputting a string into javascript

I have a problem with having php output a string into javascript.
I need to take the contents of a textfield (that is stored in a db) and output a javascript 'safe' string. The trouble I'm having is if the user used the "Enter" key to begin a new line, the javascript string breaks and I get a 'unterminated string literal' error.

I have tried using php's str_replace() to replace \n with "" but no luck.

Anyone know about this and how I can get rid of this error?
