Given that, like Python, javascript accepts strings either single or 
double quoted, you could try using backquotes to escape the 
string:

 form.select.options[0].text = <dtml-var "`title`">;

should (untested) give you:

 form.select.options[0].text = '"Quoted String"';

Provided title is a string, this will escape any quotes and, for that 
matter, unprintable characters, and wrap either single or double 
quotes round the outside. If title is a method then you need to call 
it first: <dtml-var "`title()`">
