Sure. I'm just saying there's a lack of backing in terms of normative CSS2  
spec text. I don't see any meta-information (HTTP headers, lang  
attributes) specifying the language either.

Incidentally, that table doesn't specify "/' for any languages. Even for  
US English it has left/right double quotation mark (U+201C/U+201D) and  
left/right single quotation mark (U+2018/U+2019), and for UK English, the  
other way around.

I would suggest explicitly setting quotes: '"' '"' "'" "'" in the above  
tests (for div in the first and span in the second).
