[bksvol-discuss] Re: British quotes

Just for clarification, and maybe it's being picky, but Rik is using the 
correct terminology--single quotes are theoretically different from 
apostrophes, though I admit that they look exactly alike, whether on the 
keyboard or handwritten or typed on the old typewriters. I guess the  
difference is function rather than form. smile

A fun book to read that is in the collection is Eat, Shoots & Leaves, by Lynn 
Truss. It explains a lot of the differences in British and U.S. punctuation 
usage and the importance of punctuation and the history in general.
