XF 1.3 Error MEssage When Adding Super admin

Have just tried to add an existing admin as a Super Admin via the config file as per instruction but keep getting this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ',' in /homepages/****/********/htdocs/*******/discussion2/library/config.php on line 10
I've checked and double checked for any extra commas and there aren't any. Advice please.

It should appear like this:
$config['superAdmins'] = '1,2';
The error is related to a problem on line 10.
Blimey, that was quick :) This is a direct copy from from my config file. Line 10 corresponds to the line affected.

$config['db']['host'] = 'db*****.db.1and1.com';
$config['db']['port'] = '3306';
$config['db']['username'] = '******';
$config['db']['password'] = '*****';
$config['db']['dbname'] = '*****';

$config['superAdmins'] =‘1,1135’;
Thanks for quick response. Hmmm. Strange, all I did was add the 1135 within the quote marks that were already there, must an issue with text editor used. I'll have another go with a different editor.

I recommend Notepad++ on Windows and TextWrangler on Mac OS X.

Both are geared very much towards editing many different code languages and whenever I have used either I have never experienced any issues with incorrect characters.
That did the trick, Mike, many thanks. I originally edited the config via Filezilla and not sure which editor it used. By default, php files are edited on my mac with 'Text Wrangler' which I used this time and it worked.

Thanks again.
Thanks Chris. I just edited with Text Wrangler it worked fine this time. Must look at setting it as the default editor within Filezilla.
