A similar tag to <q> could be <paren>, which would be a language-sensitive
way of adding parentheses. (a) Different languages use different 
characters as parentheses, so they should be represented by HTML tags
rather than by text characters; (b) parentheses, being logical operators
rather than meaningful text, can (should) be represented by HTML tags.
