Oops - forgot to say that it wasnt tested.

I dont know if it would make a difference later on in the script, but I had
a few problems a week or so ago and that was one of the changes I made
before I got it working.
Problem was I mad a few changes at once so it could have been any of them!

Its good practice to only double quote those strings that need parsing
anyway - might not seem like much of a difference for only a small program,
but everything adds up and it can make a difference in running time for
larger apps.
