I agree that <q> has problems, particularly with en-US style punctuation.
However, if the italics is going to be in the CSS, I think the quotation
marks should also be there.

I'd like to note also that citations in languages other than English --
in Chinese, for example -- are probably done differently. (This is why
either all citation formatting should be the responsibility of the author
or none of it should be.)
