[Q] Estimated error of sample percentile?

I am looking for an expression for the estimated error of a sample
percentile statistic (more specifically, the sample median). I've
looked in the two statistics textbooks I have without much success.
Does anybody know a source for this information?

Thank you very much in advance.
