Question:
How can I embed a quote in a string since it is a reserved
delimiter?


Answer:
You can either use two single quote characters where a 
single quote is required, or define a constant who's value 
is character number 39. If you have many quotes to embed 
(this can happen in a complex  SQL statement), the second 
method is preferred.

Example:

const Quote = #39;

{This line will not compile!}
ShowMessage('The smith's yard is greener than ours');

{This line will compile}
ShowMessage('The smith''s yard is greener than ours');

{This line will compile}
ShowMessage('The smith' + Quote + 's yard is greener than ours');
