Strings are instances of the string type. String literals are defined within double quotes.

Strings allow a rich set of escape sequences, including Unicode code points and interpolations.

CUE also supports multi-line strings, enclosed by a pair of triple quotes ("""). The opening quotes of a multi-line string must be immediately followed by a newline, and the closing quotes must be on a line by themselves, optionally preceded by whitespace. Any whitespace before the closing quotes must also prefix the lines between the quotes, because it is removed from all lines.

a: "\U0001F60E" // A 21-bit Unicode character.
b: """
	This is a
	multi-line string \(a)
