In VBScript you need to double the quotes to escape them...
Call Response.Write(""".""")
In JScript, escape them with a backslash...

The way that I do this in VBScript takes a few extra characters for a line, and is just a personal preference. I use the Chr() function to insert the quote character in the string. The line below would look like:

Response.Write(Chr(34) & "." & Chr(34))
I don't use it very often, only when I really NEED a quote on the page.
