well, it's not what i was discussing ;-)  I was (a) trying to establish 
what the requirements are, so that (b) i can have another bash at 
getting things sorted out in HTML5, and probably CSS too.

however, i was also going to say that you can always add
quotes: none;
styling to prevent q producing quote marks, or style it so that it does 
what you prefer.  What i'm looking at is how in future to improve the 
default result in the absence of fine tuning.
