Quoting things is one of those areas where every language and tool seems 
to have its own rules. I particularly like PHP's version, where " and ' 
are almost interchangeable.

So "'" outputs a single quote, while '"' outputs a double quote.

They aren't quite identical in operation - variables get expanded inside 
double quotes, not inside single ones.
