How do I create something like this in javascript or jquery:

myarray(#).title
myarray(#).year
myarray(#).country

For example, data:

myarray(1).title = "canada"
myarray(2).title = "america"
myarray(1).year = "1999"

etc.

Thanks.

Javascript uses [] as its array indexing operator.  The expected variable is an array of object, which can be done using:
var myarray=[{'title':'canada','year':'1999'},{'title':'america'}];

// to show the result
// alert(myarray[0].title + ', ' + myarray[0].year + ', ' + myarray[1].title);

Please see my article on objects and arrays.  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/A_13138-Javascript-is-just-an-Object.html

An array and object are VERY closely linked
