    What? The OP wanted to use the " character in Strings, which can be accomplished using the escape sequence \".

    Indeed, using the escape character \ will allow you to insert a character that would normally be, for want of a better word, illegal.

    If only I'd known this sooner myself, a lot of my strings in coursework pieces, especially text-based RPG's use single quotes (') to designate speech, and it looks untidy!
