impossible to match a string pattern with a quotation mark in an opened file 
file = '''it's an opened file made of "strings"'''
if '''"string"''' in file:
in iddle, it works with no difficulties...
but if the file comes from an file = open(fileadress).read()

the same code return nothing... it do not find the pattern string, and just because of double quote marks (i've not tried with some other marks)

for me it's a bug, because it do works well, if their no quotation marks

the word "string" got an "s" for sure, or it will not match it... but the problem is not about typography :D

Could you please upload the test file that would allow us to reproduce this behaviour.

well, silentghost... a .txt file, or an .html and that's all... if there's some text into... just find a pattern with some  - " - 

import the file in python(iddle)

and type :

if '''pattern''' in file:
__ print('ok')
__ print('none')

i don't think that a file is really necessary... you'll do certainly better than me in testing...

OK, sorry, but this is just nonsense. What most likely happens in your case is that the file doesn't contain a standard ASCII double quote, but one of it's fancy siblings.

For the note: I did test and naturally wasn't able to reproduce this.

solution found.
as Silentghost was saying, the problem was in the encoding of the quotemarks... and somes other /ecute and web encoding... unseeabble directly in my navigator, and not directly in free-access by a simple xxx.replace(a,b)... 
the translation was not complete, and i omit to verify it before to come here... sorry... but it was really weird
