Typographic Curved Quotation Marks ( ‘ ’  “ ” vs ' '  " " )

I prefer Typographic Curved Quotation Marks ( ‘ ’  “ ” vs ' '  " " ) and am in the process of “fixing” the articles for publication with the preferred Marks.


Links to this article: ‘ ’  “ ”  ' '  " "  <--I mark corrected articles in this manner.

“ ”
Double quotes (curly)

‘ ’       
Single quotes (curly)
   
" "
Typewriter double quotes
    
' '
Typewriter single quotes


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quotation_mark

Typographically, there are two types of quotation marks:

    '…' and "…", are known as neutral, vertical, straight, typewriter, or "dumb" quotation marks. The left and right marks are identical.
    ‘…’ and “…”, are known as typographic, curly, curved, book, or “smart” quotation marks. The beginning marks are commas raised to the top of the line and rotated 180°. The ending marks are commas raised to the top of the line.

Curved quotation marks are usually used in manuscript and typeset text. Because typewriter and computer keyboards lack keys to directly enter typographic quotation marks, much typed writing has vertical quotation marks. The “smart quotes” feature in some computer software can convert vertical quotation marks to curly ones, but sometimes imperfectly.

The closing single quotation mark is identical or similar in form (depending on the font) to the apostrophe and similar to the prime symbol. However, these three characters have quite different purposes. The double quotation mark is similar to—and often used to represent—the ditto mark and the double prime symbol.
