Replacing quotation marks

The following removes any unwanted apostrophes before being inserted
into an sql database:

Articletext = replace(article Text,"'","''")

..but if I need to remove all quotation marks, this doesnt work:

Articletext = replace(article Text,""","''")

"" = empty string
""" = empty string + extra "

To place a " into a string use "".

Your code would then be:
Articletext = replace(article Text,"""","''")
or alternately:
Articletext = replace(article Text,CHR(34),"' '")

You need to double-up apostrophes to stop them interfering with the
delimiters needed around textual column contents - why do you need to
double-up quotes?

I need to assign a string to a variable but the text string includes quotation marks: Example: MyString = "He turned and said "Hello" before leaving." When the compiler hits the quotation marks in front of Hello, it assumes the string is over and generates and error on the remainder. I must use the double quotes " in my string and not the single ' so that isn't an option. How can I avoid this? Thanks in advance from a noob thrasher!

One disadvantage of using a simple text editor to produce HTML is that it is relatively time-consuming to put in the proper typographical quotation marks and dashes. A round tuit having arrived on my desk, I've produced a couple of sed scripts to automatically convert the 'typewriter' equivalents: http://www.xs4all.nl/~sbpoley/webmatters/proper_quotes.html I've tested them fairly thoroughly, but I'd be grateful if a few other

Greetings. Do any popular browsers correctly support <q>, at least for Western languages? I've noticed that Mozilla uses the standard English double-quote character, ", regardless of the lang attribute of the HTML document. Will any browsers render German-style quotes or French-style guillemots for lang="de" and lang="fr", respectively? Regards, Tristan

Hi. For many years I have been using &quot; for double quotation marks in the HTML code, but the opening and closing quotation marks render the same in my browser. I'm considering going through and using &ldquo; and &rdquo; (in pairs as needed) instead. Are there any *disadvantages* to doing so, besides the time it will take to make the change? Thanks.
