[Seaside] How to escape single quotes in generated JSON?

Hi guys,

I am trying to serialize a dictionary form Smalltalk with either NeoJSON or
with Seaside's #asJson. Imagine something like this:

| infoDict stream |
stream := String new writeStream.
  infoDict := Dictionary new.
*  infoDict at: 'exception' put: 'a  ''escape this'' aa'.*

Note that the string of 'exception' may contain single quotes inside.

Then, at some point I do:

*self requestContext responseGenerator response nextPutAll: (infoDict

Problem is the string arrives without any escaping so....when I try to do
this at client side from that string:


I get an error as single quotes inside the double quotes do not seem
I tried a lot of combinations of *"JSON.stringify*" or things like:

''\\$&'').replace(/\u0000/g, ''\\0''); *

but none work...

So..I wonder...can I simply escape this from server side at the time I
serialize to JSON? Any special way of doing this or I hack on the resulting

Thanks in advance,
