Single vs Double Quotations

Generally XPath expressions values in display or calculation conditions will be surrounded by inside quotes IE
<bind nodeset="/data/name" />
However literal values would also be surrounded by single quotes:
<bind nodeset="/data/name" calculate="'will pride'" />

You can use single quotes or double quotes, both work fine.


Spaces generally will not matter (i.e. Will be ignored) unless they are themselves in a string literal
