Likewise. :)
I have no problems reading ``this'' as double quotes, but ,,this" is just
a double comma.

Well, `` isn't a double quote any more than ,, is--it's a pair of grave
accents. There is a proper double opening quote for english in UTF-8,
just like there's a proper double opening quote for german in UTF-8. The
only difference is that (until my previous post) english-speaking users
haven't demanded an apology for misusing punctuation.
