[web-devel] BlazeHtml: How to write quotation-marks in attributes?

The preEscapedXXX functions make sure no HTML escaping occurs. In this
case, we use preEscapedTextValue: Text, because we're passing Text to
the function, and Value, because it needs to be converted to an HTML
attribute value.

    {-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings #-}
    import Text.Blaze (Html, (!))
    import qualified Text.Blaze.Html5 as H
    import qualified Text.Blaze.Html5.Attributes as A

    test :: Html
    test = H.body ! A.onload (H.preEscapedTextValue
        "javascript:document.getElemByID('q').focus();") $ ""

Hope this helps,
