Sam Ruby and Dan Connolly asked me to send proposed issue closures in  
individual emails, with clear subject lines, and Cc'd to the issue  
originator when possible. Apologies for the spam. If there are no  
objections, I will close this issue on 2009-09-03.

ISSUE-48: UA-q-quotes - Should user-agents generate quotes for the q  
element
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/48

This issue raises two complaints: (a) the draft instructs authors to  
add quotes to Q elements manually; and (b) the draft makes no clear  
user-agent recommendation regarding blockquote. I believe both of  
these issues are now addressed, and the interoperability issue with Q  
is addressed. The rendering section now requires that user agents add  
quotes to Q elements:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#punctuation-and-decorations

Since rendering is generally specified and BLOCKQUOTE doesn't require  
adding quotes, it should be assumed UAs are expected not to add  
quotes, as would be consistent with existing practice.

Thus, I believe the problems raised by this issue are solved in  
current drafts. I suggest closing.

Regards,
Maciej
