  • Question

  • Simple question for you, I was looking at a blog on msdn and it game me the idea of adding a random quote each day... simple enough but after adding values into a database, Im now debating now how to format the Author name.

    Most quotes are usually in the format:
      "Ever artist was first an amateur."    
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    In your opinion, would you just add the hyphen (and quotes) within the database or... what would you suggest?   Adding the quotes within the DB doesnt really bother me since I should always use them, but that hyphen just doesnt seem right.

  • I like the way you have it but I would un-italicize the name of the author of each quote.

  • I am not sure why this is in an ADO.NET DataSet forum. Nevertheless, what control are you using to put the quote in?
