Please could you give me the code to get a link to appear in a dynamic html page, created in a servlet as follows:

out.println("<A HREF=http://www.javasoft.com/images/duke_404.gif TARGET=image> Load Image</a>")

I need to put double quotes around the file name and the target name, but the compiler will not accept this, it thinks they signify the end and start of new strings.

How do I get around this.

Thanks

This is simple:

out.println("<A HREF=\"http://www.javasoft.com/images/duke_404.gif\" TARGET=\"image\">Load Image</a>");

Basically, you need to prepend the double quote with a backslash (\)
