JSLint "bad escapement" on a multiply sign

I need to display a multiply sign (×) in a modal being created by JavaScript like so:

$(blah).dialog({ something: '\327' });

However, JSLint says this is a "bad escapement". Unfortunately, using an HTML entity like &times doesn't work in this situation—only the escape code will display properly. Anyone know why this is a bad escapement and if there's a way around this?


Use the hexadecimal escape: '\u00D7'.

You can just use Ă— if your file encoding is all right.
