I'm reletivley new to Rev, but I tried putting 
answer "This is a quote symbol "&quot
into the msg box and the result was ' This is a quote symbol quot '
whereas when I put 
answer "This is a quote symbol "&quote
into the msg box the result was ' This is a quote symbol " '
could be you just nee to add the 'e' at the end of the word quote

Subject: Create HTML file from rev app

Hi there all,

It's been a while since my last question but working hard on some apps.
For my daily job I needed a quick app to create a HTML file. In the
app I have some fields and in one of them I put a URL (just
In some hidden fields I put the needed HTML and the all come together
when I save the file.
All works fine but when I look at the sourcecode in IE8 or Safari the
HTML isn't completely correct.
In a link it misses the quotes (") at the beginning or the end of the URL.

What I do is this:
put "<a href="& "http://" & fld "link" & " & target="& _blank &" >"
& fld "link" &"</a>" & "<"&"br/"&">" & "<"&"br/"&">" after tData

I also tried this but that doesn't works either:
put  "<a href="& """ &"http://"  & fld "link" & """ &"  &
target="& """ & blank & """ &" >" & fld "titel" &"</a>"
after tData
(the " isn't translated then into a quote)

I start the HTML file with:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<html xmlns="">

Anyone knows why I don't get the qoute?
And is there a way to get them?
