Remove Quotes from String

Remove quotes from a string so it can be used in a csv file or any other situation where allowing quotes would cause the string to terminate prematurely.

textcomment = removeQuotes(textcomment);

function removeQuotes(str) {
	return str.split('"').join('"');
}

Example:

javascript

textcomment = 'George said "Hi everyone." as he entered the room.';
textcomment = removeQuotes(textcomment);

Produces the result: 

value of textcomment == George said "Hi everyone". as he entered the room.

Which is displayed as quotes in a browser as shown below. This prevents additional quotes from terminating the string and causing javascript or html errors. The string below is displayed with " in place of quotes.

George said "Hi everyone". as he entered the room.
