Current bash.xml accepts (a), but not (b). The single qoute is

x="`echo \"'\\\"\"`" is valid
My bash highlighter thinks this is invalid. So does my brain. However
bash seems OK with it. Why, I wonder? Maybe I am not clear on the
expansion rules in this instance.
x=`echo \"'\\\"\"` isn't
Ditto, except bash also (correctly IMO) doesn't like it.
The other way around:
x=`echo "'\""` is valid
x="`echo "'\""`" isn't
but both are highlighted as valid.
That's odd, because all of the following are valid:
echo `echo "'\""`
x="$(echo "'\"")" <-- this should be syntactically equivalent?!
...so this feels like a bug in bash.
