& quot ; [without any spaces]
is encoded html for double quotes ("). There is something wrong with how you are storing it. It must have an ampersand prefix and semicolon suffix.

You can use HttpServerUtility.HtmlDecode Method (String)[^] to decode the string to normal text.

I was struggling to write & quot ; without spaces. They encode it here as well.
