If I delimit the string with double quote, then I have to escape every
double quote in whatever I serialize. I'm moving strict html from the server
to the browser, and therefore the value of every tag attribute is delimited
by double quotes. That means that I'd have to escape every double quote, and
there are MANY more of them.
