Hi -

I have a string that is stored in the format of JSON
i.e {"comment": "Hello this is a comment"}
I grad the string on the server and send it to jquery to parse.
Everything works great until a someone make a comment like this...
- Hello this is a *comment* - i say "this is fun"
This really messes with my JSON string on the front end

Is there a simple way to encode a JSON string?

Thanks

You need to escape char like the double quotes : Hello this is a *comment* - i say \"this is fun\"

Check the string section here : http://json.org/

why << but >> ?

you need to put a backslash for each reserved character for example with replace : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fk49wtc1.aspx

Downloaded Newtonsoft.Json.Net20.dll and I am using:

Json.JsonConvert.SerializeObject(mystring)

Everything seems to work unless I have a word like don't or shouldn't

I thought SerializeObject would handle the ' an I missing something?
