how to retain quotes in the value after submitting the page
I have a text box if a user enters a phrase he enters it within single(') or double quotes(").
If the properties for test box are like this
<input name="test" id="test" value = "<%=queryText"%>"> then
the text box value is blank after submitting the form and when sourcecode is checked the value is ""testing"".
if modified to <input name="test" id="test" value = <%=queryText"%>>
then the value is shown after submitting the form as testing without quotes
The page is JSP search page.After submitting the page appears with all the results since it is a search page
How can I retain the value as it is when the value is entered in quotes.

Would it not be simpler if the user entered the search term without any quotes, and then these were added before submission.
testStuff = '"' + testStuff + '"';
