Summary0001089: Confusing problem message for wrong kind of quotes around text
DescriptionThe attached source provokes

- - - -
Problem. The sentence 'Foo is 'bar'' tells me that 'Foo', which is a text that varies, should start out with the value ''bar'', but this is an object and not a text.
- - - -

which is confusing first because of the implicit object creation and second because the additional single quotes create the appearance of double quotes in the error report. I'm not sure what a good improvement might be—perhaps this should be a special case?
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
There is a room.
Foo is some text that varies.
Foo is 'bar'.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded
