Xml attribute escape


I know I can use <CDATA to escape characters within xml tags but what about attrbutes values?

For example, I have a select box having the following options in xml:

Value desc 1

Value desc 2

Value desc 3

Value desc 4

Value desc 5

Now I know that if “Something” has a & character, I could replace it with &

But what if I need to have a doublequote in the something. let’s say the value would be a doublequote. How do I do that while keeping the doulequotes as my value identifier. I’ve tried " and " but it does not work.

Please let me know

Thank you

You can combine double (") and single (’) quotes to set attributes:
Value desc 5
