Multilingual q quote rendering

State:

Description:
4.6.7 The q element
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/text-level-semantics.html#the-q-element

On behalf of the i18n WG.

See bugzilla: https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13414


We think it would probably be useful to add a note to this section to remind readers that users can set the quotation marks differently for content in a particular language using the quotes property in CSS.

It would also be useful to provide a non-English example (there is one in the CSS spec for Norwegian).

Btw, any description of language-dependent styling should mention that the shape of the quotes around the q element depends on the language outside the q element, not the language inside it.
