Hi,

Is there a way to put a ' and " inside the value of a input text field?

<input type=text value='hello's there, hello"s there'>
<input type=text value="hello's there, hello"s there">

Neither option above works.  The value string will get truncated.

Is there a way around this?

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried using either the ISO Latin code of: &#38;

or, the symbolic: &amp;
