Hello Experts.

I'm new to C#. I am having difficulty using double quotation marks inside a String.  

I am creating an HTML email using message.Body and I would like to include a <a href>
message.Body = "Here's my <a href="testlink.com">link</a>";

I'm getting an ( ; expected ) error around my double quotes inside the <a href> tag.understand why, but I'm having trouble finding the right syntax.  

How is this accomplished with C#?

You can do it this way:
message.Body = "Here's my <a href=\"testlink.com\">link</a>";
