Default Escape sequences for HTML

signing up for fax services for my asp application, the function prototype is:
SendFaxResult = obj.SendCharFax("username","password",+"1 281 999 9999",stringmessage, "HTML") ;

so i need to format the stringmessage in html. My problem is There are just TOO MANY escape sequences required. Any suggestions on how i can avoid doing this manually. I aready tried putting @ infront of the string but it didnt work (probably because the html contains loads of quotes)
keep in mind that i will need to plug in variables like so

stringmessage= "<p> Name: " + name + "</p>";

I don't know if you can get around it. By the way, creating a large string, you will get better performance using the System.Text.StringBuilder class.

I am not to sure if this is what you mean, but if you mean that you want to convert all your HTML to the appropriate escape characters i think you can just pass the string though the server.HTMLEncode(string) function.

Also, Brian is right regarding the stringBuilder class!
