A question for you XHTML-compliance fanatics laugh

Does it matter whether single quotes or double quotes are used for attribute values within tags?

In every XHTML reference I've read they use "double quotes".
Don't know if it matters though.

if you are using them in code such as php, single quotes won't throw errors and you don't have to escapte them as with double-quotes smile

I would still use double over single quotes. Consider the following example:
code:
[qb]
Code
<?php
echo '<img src="this.gif" alt="something" />
';
echo "<a href="#" onclick="return confirm('Are you sure?\nThis action can\'t be undone!');">delete</a>";
?>
[/qb]
