Squadless,

What language are you using?  Most use double quotes for a special purpose but also provide a way to escape them so they would be treated as a normal character.  The character you use depends on the language.  Some common ones are the backslash (\) or a double quote (").  To escape the double quote with either of these you would use \" or "".

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
