The problem is not so much the spec itself but more the 
implementations...

For example, the “q” element has never been implemented correctly, 
except MS IE 5 for Macintosh (I'm not sure if complete). There's a big 
problem of internationalization here.

Mozilla, Opera, Safari and IE Win have never been able to implement it 
correctly unfortunately :(((

See My bug report for it
	http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144853

Until now, my pages do not display the quotes correctly except if I 
hardcode the quotes.

Some people will say, so why not hardcode it. Because you have an 
editing problem if you do that. If you cut and paste a piece of text 
with a citation (q element) and you change the wrapping context of the 
citation the quotes change.

Small reminder too: "blabla" are not the english quotes, “blabla” are.
