JSON is in fact a subset of JavaScript, and modern browsers now
include a specific API for parsing and generating it
(https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Using_native_JSON ).
=============
@Chris, thanks for the pointer on parsing json.
=============
Python likewise has a JSON module in the std lib:
http://docs.python.org/library/json.html
========
I tried with json in std lib.
But it is included in python 2.6 onwards.
For my current proj, I need to use python 2.5.
Hence can't use json from the std lib.
Any idea on converting list to json in python 2.5?
=========

Thanks,
Vineet
