I never understood that.  To me, quotation marks are a matter of
grammar, not style.

Therefore quotation marks should be part of the content, which is
where I tend to put them, and undo the default CSS for the browsers
that insert them automatically.

This way I still have quotation marks in Internet Explorer, when
copy/pasting from Firefox and when CSS is disabled.
