Documentation bug: Section 7.3.2

Daniel Johnson-2
This is another LaTeX leftover documentation bug in section 7.3.2:

\lyricmode { He said: ``Let my peo ple go'' }

should be using curly double-quotes instead of back- and forward-quotes.

Sorry, I don't understand.  Should I change these to straight "" ?  If
so,
why not simply delete the `` '' example, since the example right above
it uses ""  ?

No, use the actual curly-quotes (you can paste them in from gucharmap,
or use the HTML entities “ and ”)

I would be very surprised if these left hand and right hand double
quotes didn't exist in Unicode. On the other hand, then the example
will be just one of many examples showing how to use Unicode characters,
so maybe it can be removed anyway.

I've revised this section in CVS, and although I can't see the result in
vim, the resulting html looks good, so I've committed it.

Cheers,
