General rules of usage:
- Use double quotation marks for quotes.
- When quotes run into two or more paragraphs, each new paragraph takes opening quotation marks, but only the final paragraph takes closing quotation marks.
- Use single quotation marks within quotes where necessary.
- Use single quotation marks when highlighting a phrase or word within a sentence.
- Where the quote is a full sentence the fullstop goes inside the quotation marks.
