Drebin,

Thanks for the advice. Actually, your example did not quite work, but it
gave me an idea, so this is what I did and it seems to be working quite

string message = "\"Alek's \\ test.\"";
message = message.Replace("\\", "\\\\").Replace("'", "\\'").Replace("\"",
"\\\"");
button.Attributes.Add("onclick", "return confirm('" + message + "')");
