Re: Quotation marks: Using =?UTF-8?Q?=E2=80=9C=E2=80=9D?= instead of ""

Well, that brings up the problem of quoting text in different languages.

For example, as far as I know:

* “English text”
* „German text“
* «French text»
* ...and so on

If this change has to be made, someone should warn the translators to
use consistently translated quote-marks all around.

But I'd rather stick with the neutral symbol.
