Utility Function: JSClean()

This one I use a lot when writing out JSON. It probably is missing something that will still break a JS string, but its all I've found so far.

<cffunction name="JSClean" access="public" returntype="string" output="false">
    <cfargument name="sString" type="string" required="true" />
    <cfset var sReturn = REReplaceNoCase(Trim(arguments.sString), "\s", " ", "ALL") />
    <cfloop list="\:':"":&" delimiters=":" index="x">
        <cfset sReturn = ReplaceNoCase(sReturn, x, "\#x#", "ALL") />
    <cfreturn sReturn />
