[Newbies] String question

I'm not trying to join anything. I want to put Transcript show: 'abc'. (including the period) into string x.

A simpler example: x := 'abc.'. puts abc. into x, so why doesn't x := ''abc'.' put 'abc.' into x (the single quotes are part of the string)?

I think you are using the period as a join operator. The join operator is a comma.
