echo '<a href="#">';

Or

echo "<a href=\"#\">";

To people who know nothing, anything is possible.
To people who know too much, it is a sad fact
that they know how little is really possible -
and how hard it is to achieve it.

If you are working with many tags that you have to have in double quotes
and don't want to have many escapes I find this works very well for me.

Heredocs

http://www.php.net/manual/en/language.types.string.php#language.types.strin g.syntax.heredoc

<?php
// off the cuff
define("SITE_NAME", "SiteName");
$id = 1;
$alt_color = "yellow";
$content = "http://" . SITE_NAME;

$link = <<<EOD // Must be on its own line but not needed to be first.
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellsapcing="0">
<tr class="tr_class">
<td style="border-bottom:1px solid gray; color:{$alt_color};">
<a href="http://{$content}?id={$id}">{$content}</a>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
EOD; // Must be first and only on its own line.

echo $link;

?>

PHP is the *P*HP *H*ypertext *P*reprocessor. Use it:

<?php

?><a href="#">#</a><?php

?>

(Insert line-breaks where convenient, but be aware that they result in
whitespace text nodes which in turn may result in a space character being
displayed. Consult the HTML 4.01 Specification for details.)

This approach (stdin – parse – stdout) wins over a here-doc string in almost
all cases, as by contrast the ending delimiter of a here-doc string must be
at the first column (so is not easy to indent), can only be followed by at
least a semicolon (which means concatenation for more complex expressions),
and requires escaping of some characters that do not have to be escaped with
the approach above.

Incidentally, it is described and recommended by one of the first chapters
of the PHP manual:

<http://php.net/manual/en/tutorial.firstpage.php>

It should also be noted that PHP 5.4 does away with the nonsense that
`<?= … ?>' would not be working with short_open_tag=Off (which required you
to write `<?php echo …; ?>' instead), so there is no good excuse left to
`echo' *everything* (instead of just the dynamic parts) rather ineffiently:

echo "<a href=\"#\">"; does that work?

What's wrong with the single quotes? HTML doesn't care.

He asked with ECHO. And that is PHP.

richard doesn't know what he wants, because he has no clue about writing
server-side PHP code...
