Strings: single vs double quotes #34

I use ExtJS library and they use single quotes everywhere. To me it's mostly a question of style except one good argument I've found so far: generating HTML. It's more convenient to use single quotes when you output html because html attributes are typically enclosed in double quotes:

    '<div class="calendar-popup" style="display: none;">',
        '<div class="calendar-popup-inner">',

I suggest a less strict guideline: just be consistent. Use whatever quotes you like but use them everywhere.
