Couple of things:

You can copy/paste text from the Windows command prompt (From memory:
Use <ctrl>-m and highlight the area, then press <enter>). Better than
taking a screen-shot.

You're sample script seems to have 'left' quote marks (“), not normal
'straight' quotes ("). Are you using MS Word to edit? You might want to
find a good text editor to use (SciTE and Notepad++ are two popular ones
that have Lua support), it'll help a lot when writing scripts.
