Q.  How can I parse JSON in any browser?

A.  Many browsers have a JSON.parse() function which is the best thing
to use.  But not all.  So use this function:

function parseJson(json) { var out; try { if (typeof JSON == 'object' && typeof JSON.parse == 'function') { out = JSON.parse(json); } else { out = eval('('+json+')'); } } catch(e) { // do nothing } return out; }
