@c The funny quoting below is to make the printed version look

One common way to quote is the typewriter convention, which quotes
using straight apostrophes @t{'like this'} or double-quotes @t{"like
this"}. Another common way is the curved quote convention, which uses
left and right single or double quotation marks @t{‘like this’} or
@t{“like this”}. In text files, typewriter quotes are simple and
left and right single or double quotation marks `@t{like this}' or
``@t{like this}''@footnote{
The curved single quote characters are U+2018 LEFT SINGLE QUOTATION
MARK and U+2018 RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK; the curved double quotes
are U+201C LEFT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK and U+201D RIGHT DOUBLE
QUOTATION MARK. On text terminals which cannot display these
characters, the Info reader might show them as the typewriter ASCII
quote characters.
}. In text files, typewriter quotes are simple and
portable; curved quotes are less ambiguous and typically look nicer.
@vindex electric-quote-chars
Electric Quote mode makes it easier to type curved quotes. As you
type characters it optionally converts @t{`} to @t{‘}, @t{'} to @t{’},
@t{``} to @t{“}, and @t{''} to @t{”}. It's possible to change the
type characters it optionally converts @t{`} to ‘, @t{'} to ',
@t{``} to ``, and @t{''} to ''. It's possible to change the
default quotes listed above, by customizing the variable
@code{electric-quote-chars}, a list of four characters, where the
items correspond to the left single quote, the right single quote, the
left double quote and the right double quote, respectively, whose
default value is @code{'(?‘ ?’ ?“ ?”)}.
default value is @code{'(?@r{`} ?@r{'} ?@r{``} ?@r{''})}.
