Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Please explain what you are EXACTLY trying to do. The original problem (as I understand it) was resolved. Now you need to escape the " in an xml tag. But then again, maybe another problem will rise. Start a new thread giving as much information as possible about your initial goal. Then describe what have you tried, what worked and what didn't.
I was trying it out manualy and mv "$currentdir/$filename" "$newdir/$newfilename" works fine. But what im acctually supposed to do is i have to generate the mv "$currentdir/$filename" "$newdir/$newfilename" command through a XML code.
The variable is given as input to Unix box. Problem is XML code is interpreting the quote(<assign to "variable"> from="mv ") as start and immediate next quote as end.
Im not able to use quotes efficiently. So Im trying out to change the format of move command. Can we use mv command to move files with name having spaces(with out using quotes ).
