Json – find a list of escape characters required for the JSON ajax return type

asp.net-mvcescapingjson

I have an ASP.NET MVC action that is returning a JSON object.

The JSON:

{status: "1", message:"", output:"<div class="c1"><div class="c2">User generated text, so can be anything</div></div>"}

Currently my HTML is breaking it. There will be user generated text in the output field, so I have to make sure I escape ALL things that need to be escaped.

Does someone have a list of all things I need to escape for?

I'm not using any JSON libraries, just building the string myself.

Best Solution

Take a look at http://json.org/. It claims a bit different list of escaped characters than Chris proposed.
