JQuery Data Table Question

I use data tables to display results of races that we time on a classic asp website (  This weekend the results of one of our bigger races showed a Data Table error until I figured out that one person's name was incorrectly entered, with a "/" inserted (ie: Johns/on).  There were no issues in the way the results were calculated and displayed everywhere except in our data tables.

Here is my question:  Are there other characters that will prevent JQuery data tables rendering?  Also, should I build some error trapping in to prevent these characters (ie: Replace(FirstName, "/", "").  Seems like a lot of processing for something that is so unlikely to happen?

Thanks in advance.
