HTML entities don't seem to display when included in CSS2's :before and :after pseudo-classes. 
This is important if one wishes to implement curly quotes, for example, as ampcodes are the 
only reliable way to invoke them.

AFAIK, you should only use escaped ISO 10646 (Unicode) hex code for extended
characters in CSS: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/syndata.html#q24

So the curly quotes would be \201C and \201D.
