Easier than you realise :)
Classically, the British use single quotes as outer and double quotes  
as inner, while the Americans do things the wrong way 'round. Down in  
Australia, we've got no idea what's going on; I suspect we used to use  
single quotes predominantly but have been adversely affected by the  
Americans over the years.
