CodeSmith Tip of the Day: Quotes in Property Value Defaults

In my free time I’m sprucing up a set of CodeSmith templates for distribution (can’t say more right now) and am going through each one setting default property values to make it easier for other developers to get up to speed with them.  I needed quotes in a default property and in the process discovered something new about CodeSmith! 

I needed this.

To my surprise, CodeSmith supports HTML Special Characters when defining property defaults.

Now if I were livin’ right I’d be discovering something new about CodeSmith every day.

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
