Including Reserved Characters in Strings Passed to Applet from PARAM Tag

How do I include reserved characters such as double-quote in the strings passed to an applet from a PARAM tag? Standard SGML entities don't work; the UNIX backslash method doesn't work.

I'd like to be able to do this:


It must be possible...

Any character in an attribute value can be replaced by its ASCII code prefaced by & and terminated by a semicolon. Certain characters such as " and & can also be replaced by special entity references (&quot and &amp respectively.) Several Web sites give complete listings of the entity references.

Try the following lines in your HTML file:

<applet code=foo.class>
<param name=test value=&quot;Here is a quote: \ &quot; .&quot;>
