No, neither if the alternatives are corect!

I will repeat, but in another form :)

Accepted quotation marks in Romanian are _only_ the pairs:


No other quotation marks are allowed, so
http://www.unicode.org/cldr/data/diff/by_type/delimiters.html is wrong
to state that U201A+U2019 are ok for Romanian.

Note that Istoromanian is not the same as Romanian.

Now I did ;-)

As a conclusion:
- the only valid quotation maks in Romanian are U201E+U201D and U00AB+U00BB;
- the only accepted combining ways for the quotes are only between the
two pairs refered above;
- the pair U201E+U201D is the prefered outer qoutation;
- U00AB+U00BB is accepted also as the outer pair, but strongly
regarded by many as an unusual practice and some say is wrong (but
that might be too strong).
