Generating Special HTML Tags

Question:
I am trying to use Print# statements to create an HTML text file and VB3 that I am using keeps interpreting the HTML characters as Data Types and operators saying it wants an Expression:expected message.

Answer:
The problem is that while HTML requires lots of double quotes, VB considers the double quote character as the delimiter for strings. In order to print a double quote, just concatenate a Chr$(34) wherever there should be a double quote. The answered question pages are generated in this manner, by the way.
