... onClick="lec("test")"> fails because JavaScript is confused by the nested quote marks.  Either escape the quotes or choose a different version of the quote mark.

also, as you've jQuery in the box, you do it like this instead :
jQuery("#mensaje").on("click", function() { // jQuery -> $
      var param = $(this).data("param");
      lec(param);
});

Open in new window


with :
echo '<li id="mensaje" data-param="' . $pa . '">'.$pa.'</li>';
