applet problem: how can I put internal punctuation into answers?

applet problem: how can I put internal punctuation into answers?
Author Ed May on 02-27-2003 at 18:16 (EST)
I'm devising a editing/proofing test. As such, I'm placing quotes and commas inside each multiple-choice answer. Utest treats anything after a comma as a new item (test answer). This is with the multiple choice applet (uTestAnswer5.class). Any way I can get around this challenge, so it won't read the commas as new items?
Thanks!

There is no way at this time to "escape" commas in the multiple choice applets, but here are a couple options:

OPTION 1) Continue to use the uTestAnswer5 applet, except only specify the letters ... A, B, C, etc. .. for the answers in the applet. Then just use regular HTML to put the full questions/options on the HTML page.

OPTION 2) Just create the entire question using regular HTML and a regular HTML form... and utilize the uTest JavaScript interface to handle saving the selected answer into uTest's internal memory. Refer to the "JavaScript Examples" in the uTest Applet reference (http://www.uburst.com/uTest/reference/) and the uTest Programmer's Guide (http://www.uburst.com/uTest/reference/programmers_guide.html) for more information about using JavaScript with uTest.
