I'd say it's that simple, if you want _really simple_ instructions. For 
HTML, that is; for CSS and some extreme cases you may need to do a bit more 
work. And no, you should never need both, since url_quote leaves no chars 
that should be html-quoted.

The developers guide explains the differences between the filters quite 
well (with examples!), but a simple rule would probably be good there, too.
