For HTML 3.0, I am proposing a new quote element <q>...</q> that
automatically generates quote characters around the enclosed text.
The choice of double or single quotation marks will depend on the
level of nesting of quotes. Otherwise, we will be able to use the
standard ISO entity names for these marks.

Best wishes,
