           Summary: Inconsistent use of single- and double-quotes
           Product: ITS
           Version: LastCall
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: ITS tagset
        AssignedTo: fsasaki@w3.org
        ReportedBy: kuro@basistech.com
         QAContact: public-i18n-its@w3.org

In the XML examples such as Example 7, the double quotation marks are used to
denote string literals, as in:
<article its:version="1.0" its:translate="yes">
but in the descriptions, the single quotation marks are used as in:
... captured by ITS markup (e.g. its:translate='yes') always ...
in the first sentence of Chapter 2.

Although XML specification seems to allow both single quotation and double
quotation marks, the description and examples for the description should use
the same kind of quotation marks to minimize the confusion to the readers.
