Backslash ('\') is the escape character for quoted strings, and allows you
to put special characters inside of strings.  For example:

\'   Single quote
\"   Double quote

You can also use \uxxxx to put out any valid unicode character.  (For more
information on escape sequences, you can review the Java Language
Specification section on Escape Sequences for Character and String Literals
at http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/html/3.doc.html#101089).

Specifically, to print the following string on the stream named out:

     Click <a href="www.java400.net">here</a> to go to Java400.net

You would execute the following instruction:

     out.println("Click <a href=\"www.java400.net\">here</a> to go to

Note the two backslashes before the quotes surrounding the URL.

Hope this helps!
