>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VELTOOLS-184
>             Project: Velocity Tools
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: GenericTools
>    Affects Versions: 2.x
>         Environment: any
>            Reporter: Maurice Perry
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: EscapeTool, escape, javascript, json
>
> The string returned by EscapeTool.javascript() method is not alway compliant 
> with the JSON syntax. For instance, when the input string contains an 
> apostrophe ', a backslash is inserted before it because there is no way for 
> the method to know if the string is enclosed with single or double quotes. 
> This is not compliant with the JSON syntax, and some JSON parsers will reject 
> the string.
> There may be other differences between javascript and JSON strings, but this 
> is the one I encountered, and I had to use a workaround.
> This issue can be solved either with a JSON method, or with a second 
> javascript method with a second parameter indicating the type of quote used.
