From my understanding Mozilla got quotes in 1.8 and Konqueror got them in 3.4, 
though with a few bugs (according to hixie's evil tests).

If anything the spec could be simplified such that multiple quotes are not 
allowed in the same content or other complicating behavior. The required two 
independent implementations are already here.
