I only meant for the quotes around the filename. I'd tried

header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename='artist -

before and it didn't work correctly. I hadn't run into the problem of
double quotes inside singe though, as the filenames I was generating
relied on a variable, and I found it easier to just escape the second
set of nested quotes and include the variable directly.

As far as I'm aware, the header() function shouldn't care whether it
uses single or double quotes, so I would assume it's something else
