hi...
this is my question:


<html>
<form>
<input type="text" name="name" value="watson">
</form>
</html>

until here,nothing special...
the word watson will be in the text field.
but watch this one:

<html>
<form>
<input type="text" name="name" value="d"r watson">
</form>
</html>

i want to write d"r watson inside the text field.
is there is a way to do it without using textarea and without writing d'r watson?
