Subject [OT] using single quotes in HTML
Date Sun, 24 Feb 2002 04:44:30 GMT
I've seen the following programming style used before, for perl code
that prints HTML:

	print "<font color='red'>ERROR!</font>";

instead of:

	print "<font color=\"red\">ERROR!</font>";

Using the single quotes for the quotes in HTML allows for cleaner
syntax in perl, since then \" or qq{} is not required.

Does anyone know if there is a disadvantage of using single quotes in
HTML (e.g. compatibility issues somewhere? I'm not sure because almost
everyone only uses double quotes in HTML).
