javascript – What does '"' mean in the code?

Question:

My code was like this

<button onclick="document.getElementById('myImage').src='pic_bulboff.gif'">
    Turn off the light
</button>

and the next time I check I came across this:

<button onclick="document.getElementById(&quot;MyImage&quot;).src=&quot;pic_bulboff_off.gif&quot;">
    Apagado
</button>

Why is this happening in the code, because of what? is there any consequence or is it detrimental in any way? I would like to be aware of everything, thank you.

Answer:

The &quot means a single quotation mark ' which is being encoded according to the rules of HTML perhaps for some language you're using or encoding the file.
