I want to be able to use ANYTHING for a JavaScript property name, including unicode characters, spaces and quotes.

For example:
ß¿¿
¿¿
Hello World
test "123"

How can I do this?

var doc=new Object();

doc.Hello=1;
doc.World=2;
doc.¿ß¿ss¿¿=3;
doc.¿¿=4;
doc.Hello World=5;
doc.test "123"=6;

alert( JSON.stringify(doc) );

Open in new window

Not going to happen.  Some characters might work, but not all.  space not a chance. quote character no chance.  Any character that is an operator... not going to happen.

Dead end, you will need to go back to the drawing board, because this is not going to happen.

Where can I find documentation about specifically what characters are allowed or not allowed?
