Obviously, this is a good fix and doesn't change the meaning. Kurt,
can you please adjust the text of my proposal D ? (I hereby propose
and/or accept this as necessary.)

Martin is correct. My intent here was to simply to use matched quotes
(according to ASCII as defined in, for example RFC-20). Unfortunately
ISO-646 is not compatible with ASCII. I should write this up
properly some time.
For correct HTML rendering, “ ” is right.

I think what Kurt means is that he is not, even with his secretary hat
on, able to make changes himself. Changes must be formally proposed,
and accepted by the proposer.
