Quote Mark In OnClientClick Message

I want to have quotes in some text displayed to the user when they click a botton but I can't get it to work.  This is my lastest attempt,

cmdDelete.OnClientClick = "return confirm('Are you sure you want to delete \'" + name + "\'?');"

I've tried quotes, double quotes, double single quotes, and other things but I keep getting javascript error when I run the page.  Also, something converts " to &quot when I try using quotes.

Does someone know how to do this?


Thanks,

Oh, nevermind.  I didn't realize the text in name had a newline character in it.
