in thread strip out anything inbetween brackets
oops. Now ya got me ranting (and nitpicking): despite the smile, "pedantry" (of which I can be guilty :>}) twists my arms and makes me disagree (on grounds of insuffient precision and breadth) with "Speech is double quoted in almost all literature I've come across,...."
Specifically, printed versions of speech are customarily double-quoted except when that speech is both single- and double-quoted (a quote of another utterance) and, in fact, depending on the narrowness of your definition of speech (ie, if narrower than a (US?) legalism in which speech includes writing, and sometimes even throwing paint at a wall), then double-quotes are also used to indicate an utterance in words, regardless of the technique.
