i changed the text to:

"Opinions from people on the public-digipub and www-international 
mailing lists point to a desire for quotation marks to remain in the 
format appropriate to the language of the text which lies outside the 
principal quotation, rather than to change according to the language of 
the text inside the quotation. This also means that there is no 
linguistically-sensitive change to quotation marks used for quotations 
within quotations."
