Response.Write - HTML texts

hi guys,

can you give me some ideas please.

i want to output on an asp page the html texts from database using response.write, but this code below gives an error


<% response.write("hello world<br><img src="somepix.jpg">") %> 

changing the double quotes to the following gives no error, but this is not an option as i don't want to touch whatever is in the database


<% response.write("hello world<br><img src=""somepix.jpg"">") %>
<% response.write("hello world<br><img src='somepix.jpg'>") %> 

do you have any ideas you can recommend? thanks


RE: Response.Write - HTML texts

You can double up the double quotes with:
Replace(string, Chr(34), Chr(34) & Chr(34)) 

RE: Response.Write - HTML texts

hi guitarzan, thanks for your reply.

how do i implement that using my example above?

RE: Response.Write - HTML texts

Run the string from the DB through a replace function first.


read the db text into a variable and response write that.
