What browser are you using?  These two snippets:

	<p>He said, "Hello World."</p>

	<p>He said, &quot;Hello World.&quot;</p>

are indentical and are rendered the same in any browser I've run across.
The first one is a lot easier to type though. :) 

The only time you *need* to use &quot; is inside an attribute value, because
attribute values are themselves enclosed in quotes:

	<p title="The &quot;Meaning&quot; of Life">...</p>
