Specifying quotation as literal in Coldfusion


how do i specify the literal " (quotation marks) in coldfusion within a variable?

Essentially i want to assign the value: <cfset id="-1"> to a variable


<cfset prefix = "<cfset id = "-1" >">

Obviously the above is illegal, so how do i do this legally? It may seem bizarre what i'm doing but i'm essentially storing coldfusion code in a variable to then write it to file.

Many thanks =)
