This sounds essentially reasonable to me. How about having HTML 5 specify
the default CSS quotes property for every language in RFC 3066 (or,
alternatively, should another RFC (or suchlike) be started for the purpose
of specifying these), so that HTML 5 can reference it)?

On another note, I advise everyone here who hasn't read it previously to
read the following article: .
Basically, it explains how to handle the kind of mess we should be trying -
in HTML5 - to head off at the pass.

Also, given that the :before and :after CSS pseudo-elements rely on the CSS
content declaration, this
table<> may
be of interest.
