Could somebody provide me with a quick and dirty line of code that will output
a HTML button that when clicked allows redirects the user to another page on the website.

I can use println to make webpages, but the quoting required for the HTML is problematic for me inside println(" ") statements

Thank you for your commnets both solutions work.  I have also found the below snippet works well for servlets.
<Script> tag what language is this JavaScript or vbScript
what is a good source of reference on this topic?

String orderformURL =
              response.encodeURL("../OrderForm.jsp");
        out.println
           ("<form action=\"" + orderformURL + "\">\n" +
              "<big><center>\n" +
              "<input type=\"SUBMIT\"\n" +
              "      value=\"Return to Order Form\">\n" +
              "</center></big></form>");

benk-master-flash,

If two solutions are good for you, you can split the points. Do you want me to reopen it to do this?
