All right, but that's their solution to not have to deal with string
contents. There should be no problems, as whatever is written in a string is
to be stored in memory or a property. It's like a bug they are not willing
to fix =P all right, i'll use the alternative proposed: move my dynamically
generated javascript files to a static .js file xD.

So, thanks David for the links! =)
