Indeed, quotes (") and apostrophes (') are a particular pain, as most
shells use them as meta-characters for wrapping arguments to programs.
They need to be escaped or wrapped, so that the shell ignores them and
passes them through to the underlying application program -- in this
case a PDF reader.
