First case:
Is the dialogue cited or remembered by the author or any character in 
the book? Or is the dialogue simply rendered in the novel, 
simultaneously to the main action? If the dialogue is taken from the 
past, it is a quotation. It is fictional, but it is true in the 
novel's universe, so you can use <q>. But if the dialogue happens 
during the main action it is not a quotation because it is coming to 
life while being read.
Second case:
Let's think of an example.
Churchill never said this:
“The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists”
Many people think that Churchill really said that once, but he didn't.
 If the author thinks that Churchill really said that sentence, he 
should mark up it with <q>, even if quotation marks are not used.
`<p>Churchill said that <q class="noquotationmarks">the fascists of 
the future will call themselves anti-fascists</q> and I agree.</p>`
