Not really sure why we need *another* rehash of the 'how to quote'
debate, but it looks ok, with the exception that the statement
'written language is typically read from top down' is not true.
There's some that read from the bottom of the page towards the top?
Strictly speaking, direction isn't a concept that applies to a 'language',
it's a concept that applies to a *script*. And there are various scripts
that are written bottom-to-top.
(Almost certainly none of them are used for computing applications, but the
statement as written is nevertheless untrue.)
