Default valid ASP?

Is this valid ASP?

Code:
'... replace problematic characters with 'blank'
function fix_characters(str)
        fix_characters=Replace(str,"""","")
        fix_characters=replace(str,":","")
        fix_characters=Replace(str,"'","")
        fix_characters=Replace(str,".","")
end function

Default

looks OK to me. If you want the function to do all 4 replacements, then you have to carry the result of each replacement through as input to the next replacement, like this:
fix_characters=Replace(str,"""","")
fix_characters=replace(fix_characters,":","")
...
