HTML Formatting vs. Linting

There seems to be a conflict between Prettier and HTMLHint in the Glitch editor.

Here’s a fragment of HTML with " named characters in a double-quoted attribute value. There are no linting errors.

<meta name="Description" content="Do these &quot;quotes&quot; look right?" />

Here’s the same fragment after being formatted:

<meta name="Description" content='Do these "quotes" look right?' />

There is now a linting error:

The value of attribute [ content ] must be in double quotes.

It appears that HTMLHint (see attr-value-double-quotes) and Prettier (see “String Rationales”) disagree about how attribute values should be quoted by default.

I believe the HTMLHint attr-value-double-quotes rule should be set to false to resolve this conflict.

If you don’t mind I’m going to change this to a feature request.

And I’ll ping @glitch_support!
