I have now tested the Content-Type header in HTTP and it appears the  
majority of distinct browser engines supports single quotes there. Given  
that single quotes and double quotes can be used interchangeably all over  
the Web Platform changing HTTP would be a far more pragmatic way forward  
here I think.
