- \’ single quote
- \” double quote
- \ backslash
- \n newline
- \r carriage return
- \t tab
- \b backspace
- \f form feed
- \v vertical tab (IE < 9 treats ‘\v’ as ‘v’ instead of a vertical tab (‘\x0B’). If cross-browser compatibility is a concern, use \x0B instead of \v.)
- \0 null character (U+0000 NULL) (only if the next character is not a decimal digit; else it’s an octal escape sequence).
Note: that the \v and \0 escapes are not allowed in JSON strings.

<script> var str = "They call it an \\n \"escape\" character"; console.log(str); </script>
Output: They call it an \n “escape” character
