The code to reproduce:
Q { font-style: italic }

The outside quotation characters end up being italicized instead of just the
quoted statement itself. I think the quotation characters should inherit the
font-style of the surrounding block and only the quote itself should be italicized.

INVALID since the quote characters are part of the element's generated content
which per CSS inherits the font of the generating element.
