#string-quotes

Specify single or double quotes around strings.

a[id="foo"] { content: "x"; }
/**  ↑   ↑             ↑ ↑
 * These quotes and these quotes */

Quotes within comments are ignored.

/* "This is fine" */
/* 'And this is also fine' */

Single quotes in a charset @-rule are ignored as using single quotes in this context is incorrect according the CSS specification.

@charset "utf-8"
/* fine regardless of configuration */

The --fix option on the command line can automatically fix most of the problems reported by this rule.
