The correct way of quoting when it's a quote which means a citation:

block of text:

	<p>...   <q>citation</q> ...</p>

Rationale: It's better to use the element q for example, because it 
has a correct semantic. But ALSO it will use the correct rendering 
depending on the language.

I filled a bug in Mozilla a while ago

And created a test page

Unfortunately the bug has not been fixed yet in Mozilla 1.2. :(
IE 5.2 for mac does a fairly good job at it.
