The 3 quotes were simply an idea. You correctly identified that it is 
already used is some special cases, so then simply replace it with some 
other unique syntax that is not used yet. As Z505 mentioned, even the 
back-tick symbol should be a good option, and not used by Object Pascal 
syntax yet. For simpler typing, seeing as not all keyboard layouts seem 
to have the back-tick readily available, maybe the quote-quote could be 
used - as far as I know Object Pascal doesn't use that yet. But if I had 
to choose between the two, I would opt for the back-tick as it is more 
clearly distinguishable.
