Quote characters



Minor issue, but still a bit of an annoyance: quote characters in
strings are wildly inconsistent. Some places use double quotes, some use
single quotes, some use angle brackets.

It might make sense to make a visual distinction for different kinds of
objects, e.g.:

    Cannot open "file name": No such file or directory

    Signal 'RESET' is tied to signal 'GND'.

    Component <U1> pin 'VCC' (1) is not driven.

At least consistently using double quotes would be a marked improvement

Translations can use localized quotes, so each language should have
their own consistent set. I'd expect German to use „file name“
everywhere, never ‚file name‘, for example.
