How do I insert HTML into Mongodb?

I keep getting kicked out of the shell when I try to paste in an HTML text file. How can this be done? Do I first need to use some javascript to encode it or something?

Example:

db.test.insert({x:"<div id='product-description'><p>Who hasn’t wished for a mini-Roomba to    handle the arduous task of cleaning their iPhone screen? Now your dreams have come true!</p>  <p>See the Takara web page for a <a href='http://www.takaratomy.co.jp/products/automee/'  title='automee s' target='_blank'>demo video.</a></p>
<p><strong>Colors: </strong> White, Red, Orange and Blue<br>
Runs on a single AA battery.</p>
<p>1,575 yen</p><!-- end #product-description --></div>"})

EDIT

I put only single quotes inside my html and wrapped the whole thing in double-quotes, but still no good. shell error:

> j = ({z:"<div id='product-description'><p>Who hasn

Answer

You need to remove or encode the control characters in your string.

For example, paste your text in here, and encode to UTF-8 ECMAScript (which means javascript strings).

ps: here an article about strings in javascript. tells you what needs escaping. http://docstore.mik.ua/orelly/webprog/jscript/ch03_02.htm
