This question already has an answer here:
• Janice used too many ‘do’s and ‘don't’s in her last paragraph.
The sentence above means that she used the individual words ‘do’ and ‘don't’ excessively in her paragraph. Without recasting and without using italics, do ‘do’s and ‘don't’s look correctly punctuated, i.e., curly single quotes around each word and a single straight quote in ‘don'ts’?
• Janice used the phrase ‘do's and don'ts’ several times in her last paragraph.
Does ‘do's and don'ts’, with the curly quotes before and after the phrase, and the straight quote in ‘don't’ look correct?
A very simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ is fine for each question. Again, I prefer single quotes around the words/phrases in question, and I opt for not italicizing.
I think I have satisfactorily punctuated each but am looking for confirmation that I did.
Again, please no recasts.
