var i = 0;
myform['info.rates['+i+'].coupon'];

1. here, '+i+' , what is its meaning? so weird .

2. what is the rule using "" and ''? which is defined as standard? '' could include '' inside?

Thanks.

1) It's just simple string concatentation. Perhaps if it were written:

'info.rates[' + i + '].coupon'

would it make more sense to you?

2) Either double or single quotes can be used to delimit strings.

To use the same quote character inside the string as is used to delimit it, you need to escape the internal quote with the back-slash character. For example:

'I saw O\'Brien the other day'
