If you use the proper functions to escape or bind arguments, Oracle should not care about what's inside your string (beyond charset issues, which is a different story).

Are you sure your problem is not related to HTML/JavaScript? In JavaScript, if you need to insert a double quote in a double quote delimited string, you need to escape with backslashes:

var foo = "y,pVF.indexOf(\".\",y));";
