A string is a series of characters manipulated as a group. A character string differs from a name in that it does not represent anything - a name stands for some other object.

A character string is often specified by enclosing the characters in single or double quotes. For example, WASHINGTON would be a name, but 'WASHINGTON' and "WASHINGTON" would be character strings.
