Just some text.  I'm trying to concatenated strings, but livecode is
looking at punctuation inside of the quoted literal.

That was a simplified version; the actual is something like

"SELECT uniqDNA FROM " & dhtbl_dna & " WHERE (cname||cadr NOT NULL) AND
(chrType <> 'K');"

where dhtbl_dna holds a table name and the rest are *supposed* to be string
