[fwd] [thelist] Replacing Carriage returns in Javascript

according to my magic book here, these are the escape sequences and their
associated characters for JavaScript:

\b	Backspace
\f	Form feed
\n	New line
\r	Carriage return
\t	Tab
\'	Single Quote
\"	Double Quote
\\	Backslash

Actually I am going to print this and hang it up as I only had the VBscript
equivalents here so far ...
Thanks for asking!

Subject: RE: [fwd] [thelist] Replacing Carriage returns in Javascript

This is a remote scripting application that will only be viewed in IE 5.5,
so I'm not worried about other browsers.  No, it's not publicly accessible.
I'm passing values via javascript to an Active Server Pages remote script
and if there are any carriage returns in the text being passed, the ASP
function receiving it bombs.  No problem if the carriage returns are
removed.  So, I figured a simple replace would solve the problem, but I
cannot find the appropriate code to specify a carriage return in the
string.replace function..
