Look for section 12.4 in CSS2 Specification:

/* Specify pairs of quotes for two levels in two languages */
Q:lang(en) { quotes: '"' '"' "'" "'" }
Q:lang(no) { quotes: "" "" "<" ">" }
/* Insert quotes before and after Q element content */
Q:before { content: open-quote }
Q:after  { content: close-quote }
