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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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?
