Yes, this is a good solution, but what to do in the case when the
output will be something like this:

document.writeln('"This is my name." - said Sandra O'Boyle');

In such a case a solution will be to replace any occurence of a quote
and apostrophe with a javascript variable name -- e.g. varQuote and
varApos. We know this is done by calling a recursive named template.

The output then will be:

document.writeln(varQuote + 'This is my name.' + varQuote + ' - said
Sandra O' + varApos + 'Boyle');

The definitions of varQuote and varApos will also have to be generated:

var varQuote = '"';
var varApos  = "'";
