If you're doing it like

<textarea>$value</textarea>

Then it shouldn't matter if there are double quotes within $value. 

If you're doing it like

<input type="text" value="$value">

Then you'll have to use htmlentities() on $value before you place it
between the double quotes.

If that doesn't help, show your code.
