The "\" character signifies to the method editor that the next immediate character should be considered as a text character.

For example, if you wanted text that contains double quotes displayed in an alert:

She said, "hello."

You would write the following code:

$display_text:="She said, \"hello.\" "
ALERT($display_text)
