    Newb question: Outputting quotes in javascript?

    I'm trying to insert a title and a body into a Google maps window through PHP. The body could contain double or single quotes. How do I output these so that they don't break the script?

    Relevant code:
    Code:
    $('#map_canvas').gmap('openInfoWindow', { 'content': '<strong><?php echo $m->marker->Title; ?></strong><br /><?php echo $m->marker->Body; ?><?php echo '<a href="./marker_info.php?id='.$m->marker->Nid.'"></a>' ?><br /><a id="m_location" href="#" data-role="button" data-icon="search" onclick="$.mobile.silentScroll(500);"></a>'}, this);

    Escape the quotes (to ensure they are interpreted as a literal).

    \" or \'

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
