I created a calendar and added one event.

If you type in an apostrophe in the description field it
causes a rash of javascript errors when viewed. You
can see that it is trying to escape the apostrophe but
you see the backslash in the display. The word It's will
demonstrate.

    Can't someone look into fixing this bug?
    This is a pretty bad bug. It corrupts data or at the least
    displays the data in a corrupted way. It is also very likely
    that users would hit this bug.

    Example calendar event descriptions.

    Chris' birthday party.
    The Troop's monthly meeting.

    Lots of descriptions of calendar events will show the
    possessive form of a noun. That means lots of people will hit
    this bug. It's probably a missing urlencode statement in the
    code somewhere.

    Thanks.

    I tried with a fresh CVS and apparently couldn't get this on
    Firebird.
    Do you have to look at the JS console to see errors?
    If you still get it on which browser is it?
