EBNF question

I just want to clear something up about reading the XML 
productions.  Am I correct in the following assumptions:

A character or sequence of characters between single quotation 
marks, e.g., 'ABC' is to be represented literally.  There must be no 
space characters between the quotation marks and the entity in the 
production.  So def ::= ' ABC ' would not be legal for representing
" ABC " .. you'd need to use SP 'ABC' SP.  However, when spaces 
do exist between the quotation marks, then the name(s) inside are 
to be treated as productions and the *quotation marks* as literals.  
For example:

abc ::= 'ABC'	; literally   	ABC
lit ::= ' abc '	; literally 	' ABC '
lit ::=' ABC '	; undefined?

Is this correct?
