Assuming that you mean "; npath=//", it is indeed correctly fontified
as a string.

I notice now that I referred to the three JavaScript examples as
"issues" -- they are not issues.

Only the last two examples are valid JavaScript. The first example,
even though _invalid_ JavaScript, might give us a hint about what the
problem is. That is the only reason why I included it.
