Tony's is probably the most viable solution.

The AutoCorrect method won't work, because both styles of quotation marks
need to be used. (Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.)

And this R-W-B "Gool Ole Boy" outfit only operates in the U.S., so
accommodating "furren" readers isn't an issue (except in the case of HR
employee manuals for the melting pot back on the shop floorâno slam
intended).
