How to stop Dreamweaver from converting " double quotes to "?

I need to use double quotes inside a tag

How to stop Dreamweaver from converting " double quotes to

"
?

I need the original " and not
&quot
; but as soon as I add the " quote via Design view, it shows " in design view, but in code view its
&quot
;

I need the " double quote to remain the same in both Design and Code view.

The reason is that i need the double quote "" in a tag such as
{mytag category="news"}


I need the exact tag as
{mytag category="news"}
but dreamweaver is changing the double quotes in the Code view to
"
so this is what i am getting in the Code view

{mytag category="news"}


ISSUE :: SOLVED

Answer Source

Found the answer

I just changed the DOCTYPE from XHTML to HTML5

And it worked fine, it did not convert the double quotes to its entity.

This solves the issue for me, for now.
