JSON syntax question

Dumb question, I'm sure: I am working to learn/understand JSON better and FM's features for handling it.  In my data viewer I have this text as my input using an example JSON string I borrowed from the internet:


Let (

$JSON = "{\"name\":\”John\”,\"age\":30,\"cars\":[\”Ford\”,\”BMW\”,\”Fiat\”]}"


$JSON & "¶" &

JSONGetElement ( $JSON ; "name" )



As a result I am getting this:




? * Line 1, Column 9

  Syntax error: value, object or array expected.


What is the syntax error in the $JSON string and/or what else may be wrong?


Thanks in advance,
