How do you place a string within a string? Please help

I'm creating a HTML email using VB Script in asp.net. I am an amatuer
programmer and require help with placing a string within a string:

I would like my mail to generate a link to a specified page. The <a
href> tag requires quotation marks and asp.net doesnt like this
because it thinks that the variable string is coming to a close. I
have tried using single quotations and also pipes but have had no joy.
If you can help I would be most grateful.

Dim strHTMLBody As String

strHTMLBody =
"<HTML><HEAD><T ITLE>Review</TITLE></HEAD><BODY>You have been asked to
comment on a new document. Please follow the link below and click on
the COMMENT button to register your review<br><br>< br><br> <a
href="www.evert onfc.com">Dave</A><br>Any questions or problems, email
ad***********@e DMS.com</BODY><HTML>"

one way is to use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") in your
href link.

eg: <a href='page.html '>link</a>

From python manual str( ) Return a string containing a nicely printable representation of an object. For strings, this returns the string itself. The difference with repr(object) is that str(object) does not always attempt to return a string that is acceptable to eval(); its goal is to return a printable string. If no argument is given, returns the empty string, ''.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
