Quotations within Quotations


I am trying to put a quote from a book. But here's the problem: The quote has a quote in it.???

Start with double quotes - "text."  The quotation within the main quotation will use single quotes - 'text.'


"This is the text from the book. The quotation in the book would look like this. 'This is the quotation within the book.'"
