    string format ...

    Hi All,
    A quick question,...


    I want my program to spit out the following line to a browser:


    <p><img src="myanim.gif" width="64" height="64"></p>


    How should I change this line?


    printf("<p><img src="myanim.gif" width="64" height="64"></p>");


    I think all of the quotes are confusing the machiene.

    Many Thanks

    You need to 'escape' the quotes by preceding them with a '\' character.

    Or, you can use single quote marks for the attribute values, which is much easier to type:

    printf("<p><img src='myanim.gif' width='64' height='64'></p>");
