Requirements for Latin Text Layout and Pagination
19.1 Language-specific spacing rules

There are further languages other than French with extended Latin 
alphabets that use different characters as quotation marks than 
English. In contrast to the English quotation marks (U+201c (8220), 
U+201d (8221)), German and Hungarian use low open quotation marks 
(U+201E (8222)). The Hungarian close quotation mark is identical to 
that of English (U+201D (8221)), while in German the close quotation 
mark is identical to the English open quotation mark (U+201C (8220)). 
It should be clearly indicated that the table is just an example, and 
there are further quotation marks in other languages, or even extend 
the table with further examples.
