Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3038) 19.470 / 19.598 -Style:Condition & Table:Condtion - quotation marks for strings not clear

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3038?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21793#action_21793 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3038:

The only reason for the informal use of double-quote is because some of us tend to use "single-quote" rather than say "apostrophe" or "quotation mark."  I agree that the Unicode name and code point being given makes everything very clear and it is very important.  But for US readers at least, diffrentiating single-quote and double-quote and not just saying quote tends to be rather important, especially in contexts where "single quote" might be confused between "one single-quote" and "single quotation mark."

But I agree this last problem diminishes when the Unicode names and specific code points are used.
