This shouldn’t matter if you’re just copying the code by typing it in or if you use the samples I’ve added to this site (note, not the PDFs). But if you copy and paste from an ebook version, you may run across this problem. It’s especially annoying as these quotes are impossible to see in many font faces.
I recommend, if you do copy code from the ebook versions, that you do a search and replace across it, replacing
I’m making a note of this in the code samples as I find them in the ebook, but it’s very hard to see and I probably won’t find all of them. (I wonder if I can search and highlight in the PDF?? hmmmm )
