How can I retrieve the value in the hidden input if there is a single quote involved in the value of the hidden attribute

For example
<INPUT TYPE=hidden name='hdInput' value='JSP's Content'>

At back-end(Java Code), I could only retrieve JSP for hdInput.
How can I get the complete JSP's Content

try putting the value attribute in double quotes if you are sure that double quotes wont be there.

If you use hidden textarea with absolute positioning, you don't need to escape anything.
