On Octave-4.0.0 on windows, the actual plot examples in the help file
are correct ( they use double quotes ) such as:

> plot (x, y, "or", x, y2, x, y3, "m", x, y4, "+")

However, when listing different options (this may have been where Jon
was confused), such as the different color options, the single
characters are listed as <backtick character single_quote>, such as:

> color
          `k'  blacK
          `r'  Red
          `g'  Green
          `b'  Blue
          `m'  Magenta
          `c'  Cyan
          `w'  White

Was this what as confusing, Jon?
