Subject Re: [OT] using single quotes in HTML
Date Sun, 24 Feb 2002 13:02:30 GMT
I suppose the real question is what does an html string look like because
after all, you don't need ANY quotes around the string is it doesn't have
any whitespace such as a font color.  As the string with whitespace, I
believe either type of quote will do.
