JavaScript: using quotation marks inside onload event

My code below works, however I want to place a pair of double quotes around the image in the onload event.


This:
src=http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/blimg/wikimedia-commons-poty-2007.jpg

Should be this:
src="http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/blimg/wikimedia-commons-poty-2007.jpg"

When I add the quotation marks, the image breaks.  I do not want to use single quotes for this-- I want to know how I can escape and use double quotes.

This does NOT work:
src=\"http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/blimg/wikimedia-commons-poty-2007.jpg\"

Have you tried using double double quotes as in ""yourimage"". It should escape them?

Trick is to quote it so that it is a runtime expression, and use Chr(34) to insert the double quotes:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Demo</title>
</head>
<body>

<div id="xyz"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
/*<![CDATA[*/

document.write('<img src="http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/blimg/wikimedia-commons-poty-2007.jpg" onload="document.getElementById(\'xyz\').innerHTML=\'<img src=\'+String.fromCharCode(34)+\'http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/blimg/wikimedia-commons-poty-2007.jpg\'+String.fromCharCode(34)+\' />\'" alt="Load Image" />');

you may use :
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Demo</title>
</head>
<body>

<div id="xyz"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
/*<![CDATA[*/

document.write("<img src=\"http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/blimg/wikimedia-commons-poty-2007.jpg\" onload=\"document.getElementById('xyz').innerHTML='<img src=http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/blimg/wikimedia-commons-poty-2007.jpg />'\" alt=\"Load Image\" />");
