Using Single and Double Quotes in Strings
Since Strings are made by placing characters in between single or double quotes, using quotes in the strings can be tricky. Each string will be closed by the matching quote type the next time it occurs in the string. That is how a String opens and closes and is made, so special considerations have to be made when using quotes inside of Strings.

You can use a backslash( ) in front of a quote inside your String to escape that character and make it render correctly in the string. Or you can be sure to use the correct quote type when opening and closing strings, due to the fact that you may use the opposite quote type in the string.

Here are code examples to help you stay free from error when using single quotes and double quotes inside of your strings. You must structure correctly when using single or double quotes in Strings since Strings are created by using single and double quotes. I commented the first two lines out because those are the ones that will break your script.
