[thelist] Problems with a php script being brought in as an external Javascript file...

Hey all...

A little while ago I was working on a site that is hosted on a gimpy server
with no custom server side scripting capabilities. So what I did was create
a 'news' feature for their site that got called like an external js file...
I thought all was good except that in NN 4.7 the news section shows up empty
(it breaks with a  Javascript error)...

Here is the site:


The file that gets rendered is here:


I've taken into account apostrophe's with addslashes() and also replaced
returns with <br>'s...

$newsText = ereg_replace("(\r\n|\n|\r)", "<br>",$newsText);

I'm guessing I'm not escaping out a character that appears in that
particular news release, but I have no idea what - I suck at Javascript.
I've put in just regular text and some breaks and it works fine...

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Huge thanks in advance!
