Computers and linux and quotation marks

I put this site together as a demonstration of my wordpress ability.
Compare with http://muesic.ca which I generated by hand.

One of the fun (or vexatious) things about linux, and related technologies like bash and sed, is the importance of quotation marks.
When I was creating this site, I edited a php file by hand, and the whole site broke.
I used a language-sensitive editor to find the error of my ways. I had inadvertently used the ‘ mark instead of the ‘ mark.
That’s  really hard to see when you’re editing by hand, but the language-sensitive editor changes the colour of text depending on the context and it’s easier to see when things are different.

So learn your punctuation on your way to becoming a great web monkey.
