I agree with Svend that this should be explicit 
in the manuals. But I am looking at [U] 18.3.1
(p.200) in the Stata 9 manual, which does spell out 
the use of left and right single quotes. 

This is also true of [U] 21.3.1 (p.194) in 
the Stata 8 version. 

I do agree that there's an awful lot to read: 
it's easy for myself and no doubt 
for many other users to miss details, 
but this does seem clearly documented in 
exactly the right places.
