My take: If there are no single quotes inside, use '.  If there are 
single quotes inside, use $$.  If there is $$ inside, use $x$ (or some 
other short sequence, not the function name).  This conveys the 
decision process we made when we designed this feature.  If there are 
several related examples in one section, use the same method for all.
