String constants: ' and "

In Language reference > Variables, I do not find the use of ' and " delimiters explained.

I suggest:

A string constant is delimited by a pair of ' (single quote marks) and " (double quote marks). If you code ' before a string constant, terminate with ' -- and if you code " before a string constant, terminate with ".

This makes it easy to include the other kind of quote mark in the constant. For example, "It's a rainy day"'

As explained above, this is already referenced in the help file. As this isn't variable related, it wouldn't be something that should be included in the variable reference section.
