Hi there, welcome to the forums.

The only reason I can think of why you’d be getting a different " symbol is something to do with localisation…

For the most part, you can use " (double-quote) and ' (single-quote) interchangeably; so, if the single-quote works OK you could use that. Both of these are understood the same in HTML:

<a href='https://www.codecademy.com/'>Also Codecademy!</a>

If you’re on a Windows machine, you can also get a double-quote - " - by holding the ALT key and typing 34 on the number pad. :slight_smile: (Not sure whether this would also work on Mac/Linux…)
