You need to use compound double quotes around any string expression which includes quotes within it: `" for open quote and "' for close quote

`"the house is "red""'

Dear all,

I would like to display this sentence

the house is "red"

I tried              display  "the house is "red" "

But it did not work.
It seems to have a problem to display the symbol " "

How can I do ?
