User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6 The <q></q> tag is falsely rendered within both Mozilla and Firebird, especially in German, French and Swiss-German. For instance, <q lang="de" xml:lang="de">Beispiel</q> should give „Beispiel“, not "Beispiel". Also in English, <q lang="en" xml:lang="en">example</q> would better result in “example” than in "example". The W3C clearly states that language specific quotation markes should be rendered (whereby language means real language, not ASCII-nonsense). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a web page 2. Use the <q> tag 3. Render the page with Mozilla 1.4 and/or Firebird 0.6 Actual Results: Always got "" instead of the language specific, correct left and right quotation marks. Expected Results: render at least „Beispiel“ for <q lang="de" xml:lang="de">Beispiel</q> and, to be perfect, “example” for <q lang="en" xml:lang="en">example</q> Well, and «» for French and »« for Swiss-German. This is a real, true bug, believe me. (At least in German, French and Swiss-German. English PC users are used to ASCII "", although that's bad, wrong English and is never used in goog books or news papers.)
