- What if we wanted to print a double quote character?
- The following line would confuse the compiler because it would interpret the second quote as the end of the string
System.out.println ("I said "Hello" to you.");
- An escape sequence is a series of characters that represents a special character
- An escape sequence begins with a backslash character (), which indicates that the character(s) that follow should be treated in a special way
System.out.println ("I said \"Hello\" to you.");
