When injecting text inside a div, I need to insert a url safely in javascript using jquery

By : mrblah
Source: Stackoverflow.com

Using jquery I am doing something like:

$("#someId").append("this is some text, go here.");

How can I insert a url like this safely? Is there an easier way to escape all those characters that will cause js to break?

Try using the html function, jquery docs

I'm no expert but something like this should work

Unless I'm mistaken by what you are asking, you could do something like

link = $('

I think escape should do it:

$("#someId").append(escape('this is some text, go here'));
