Replacement of & , &

I was trying this java script inside a mozilla extension but the
browser shows me error
this.replace(/&/g,'&amp;').replace(/</g,'&lt;').replace(/>/g,'&gt;');

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed at  replace(/&/g,'&amp;')

Any thoughts ?

Thanks

Enclose your script in a CDATA section, or use a separate file for your
javascript.

&& In Generated Javascript Becomes &amp;&amp;
I am trying to write client side scripts in c#, asp.net V 1.4. The && operator is generated in the javascript as &amp;amp;, which causes errors.  How can I avoid this? (Code below)  Thanks in advance.   script = "<script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>\n"; script += "if (Form1." + tbxA.ClientID + ".value == '' && "; script += "Form1." + tbxB.ClientID + ".value == '') {"; script += "Form1." + cbxC.ClientID + ".Checked = false;}"; ...

& turning to &amp;
I'm doing an operation reformat and trying to use the & in a text box. In the trace it looks ok in the policy, but when it gets to the actual xml value it turns into this: <modify-attr attr-name="EG"> <remove-all-values/> <add-value> <value>&amp;</value> </add-value> </modify-attr> Can I fix this in policy builder or by escaping the character somehow? Or do I need a stylesheet to fix the problem? -- nate_spears ------------------------------------------------------------------------ It isn't a p...
