[texhax] use of " in LaTeX

I'm trying to produce a document which includes various measurements in inches
for which the generally accepted notation is ". However, my editor kindly 
replaces this with `` or '' depending on context, which produces the 
quotation marks in the output. By judicious fiddling I can get the " into
my .tex file, but it still ends up as quotation marks which don't look
right on measurements. I've looked in most places but none of them seem
to tackle this problem. Can anyone give me a recipe?
