Invalid CFML Error when using Replace Function

Hi,

I am using the replace function to clean up some html content.  Some of the text is in quotes and I believe that is why I am getting the error.  Anyway around this?
Thanks in advance!

<cfcomponent>
   
    <cffunction name="createEditorFile1" access="remote" returnType="string">
      <cfargument name="data" type="string" required="true">
         <cfargument name="GroupNo" type="string" required="true">
          <cfargument name="NPSGroupNumber" type="string" required="true">
         <cfargument name="NPSGroupSection" type="string" required="true">
          <cfargument name="BPIDReg" type="string" required="true">

             <cfset cleanData = replace(#cleandata#,"<th class="col1" />","<th class="col1">&nbsp;</th>","all")>
               
      <cfreturn cleanData>
    </cffunction>
   
   
</cfcomponent>

You have nested quotes in your statement...  you cannot enclose quotes within quotes unless they are escaped or different types of quotes

   <cfset cleanData = replace(#cleandata#,"<th class="col1" />","<th class="col1">&nbsp;</th>","all")>

Enclose in single quotes instead (and of course get rid of the useless #s around cleanData)

   <cfset cleanData = replace(cleandata,'<th class="col1" />','<th class="col1">&nbsp;</th>',"all")>
