Quoting quotes in a meta description tag

steva asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I want to include a quote in a meta description tag.  For example:

<meta name="description" content = "The best site for cameras.  \"I love  this site! \"- Louis Allen " />

When Google pulls this out I'd like to see a SERP entry of
    The best site for cameras.  "I love this site!" - Louis Allen

I can think of serveral ways that might work - \"  ,  &quote;  ,  <q> , using single outside quotes and double inside quotes -  but I'd rather not have to wait for Google to recrawl the page to see what they accept.   So does someone know what will work here?

Thanks for your input.
