Back to that old parser.  

You are suppose to be able to backslash the quote, but it doesn't seem
to work -- I thought it did.  I see there's a note about it in the
code.  I'll look later.

BTW -- if you want the quotes to effect your search you will need to
add the quotes to your WordCharacters, BeginCharacters and
EndCharacters settings as it's not part of the default set.
