My apologies.  I forgot to include the link.

Yes, but the quote next to the 'Y' that you bracketed there is NOT the 
quote that is next to the 'Y' in the source.  A literal interpretation 
of what the spec says right now, with fictional elements and all, is 
that the bracketed parts that are green should be as follows:

   <p>["]MIYALAHSURE[Y]" is the Hebrew word for "Jerusalem."</p>

Note that I agree that your rendering looks a lot better, but there is 
really no connection whatsoever between the 'Y' and '"' that you bracketed.
