Enclose literal strings in either:

  1. A set of single quote marks,

The following example simply assigns the string "literal text" to the variable xString:

xString = "literal text"

To use a string delimiter in a literal string, use a different set of delimiters to delimit the string. For example:

? [There are three string delimiters: the ', the ",] + " and the []"

Note that the literal string had to be broken up into two separate strings, because all three kinds of delimiters were used.
