WRITE-TO-STRING takes a number of keyword arguments (e.g., :escape)
that control the printed representation of the objects output to the
string. These all default to the corresponding global control
variables (e.g., *print-escape*). Because you didn't specify the
:escape keyword, in your call to write-to-string, it's output will
change depending on the value of *print-escape*.
You should do the following instead:
This will ensure that strings are printed with double quotes, numbers
are printed in base 10, etc.
