Subject: Escaping quotes in FORMS


I need to generate forms which have double quotes in them as default
values for text fields as in:

                       -------------------------------------
Enter a quoted string: |   "default is quoted"             |
                       =====================================

How do I escape the quotes?? I need some HTML mechanism like:

Enter a quoted string:<input name="qt" value="default is \"quoted\"">


Is there a way to do this??
