in reply to To Single Quote or to Double Quote

Others will look at performance issues (or lack thereof). I look at the front-end of it. Using single quotes means I don't have to hit that shift key. Single quotes saves me work, so that's the only logical choice. :-)
On the other hand, using double quotes (in my opinion) makes the code more readable... So I guess it's still a toss-up.
