Master list of OS X keyboard shortcuts
Authored by: jeffshenk on Mar 20, '12 07:04:09PM

It's surprising that a designer who practices correct typography would call a "dumb" single quotation mark a foot mark, since in proper typography the foot mark is the prime symbol and the inch mark is the double prime.

Many people also use the "dumb" quotes for measurements, whether it's correct or not. In that comment I wasn't trying to get into a long typography lesson here. I was simply trying to make the point that I was using proper quotes and apostrophes.
