Why not single quotation marks: ‘ and ’ instead? Many people associate
double quotes to verbatim speech, while this is almost never the case in
user interfaces.

  - The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks

  - The Gallery Of "Misused" Quotation Marks

...since quotation marks are often used inappropriately.
