Escaping forward slashes

Help needed to escape forward slashes

I have a link   myhome/test1/gothere    and I need to ensure the forward slashes dont strip out.  The backslashes are fine

class="test" onclick=\"pageIt(\"#test2\",6,\"first\",\"anotheroption\",\"myhome/test1/gothere");\">

Open in new window

I think the problem is not with the forward slashes, but rather with the first and last quotation mark. You have not escaped them properly. This is what you need to do:
class="test" onclick="pageIt(\"#test2\",6,\"first\",\"anotheroption\",\"myhome/test1/gothere\");">
