My main concern is how some languages escape different strings.  For 
example in perl:

$p = 'some value';

print "This 'is a' string: $p";
print "\n";
print 'This "is a" string: $p';

The output is different for each, one escapes $p the other prints the 
value.  Though, in the example given I don't think there was any issue 
of this.
