This template is also similar to {{-'}}, used to slightly space apart a leading single quote from a surrounding double quotation mark provided by a template parameter in which the content is placed, e.g. the |title= parameter of {{cite web}}. The equivalent template when manually placing double quotes around a single-quoted passage is {{" '}}; see also {{'-}} and {{' "}} for the right-hand side equivalents (parameter and manual, respectively). All of these templates use 0.2 em of spacing, while {{'}}, this template, uses only 0.1 em of spacing, as does {{'s}}, which is used for possessives in italics.
